How do I show the running IOS-XE for 4500X switches other than using show version way?

I am trying to find a way to show the current IOS version running in a 4500X. The show version indicates software running default and other commands like show bootvar only indicates what I have configured. Is there other way? Is it related to configuration register?

Thanks

I don't understand what you are trying to do.  

 

The "sh hardware" (old command) or the "sh version" will tell you the IOS version of the switch.  The version is found in the first line output.  If you want to be pedantic, the same set of command(s) will show you the bootvariable statement as well as the location where the IOS file is located.

Hi Leo,

Thanks for answering me. I am trying to find an alternative. Yes I am aware of those commands. But I found interesting that it has some relation between the configuration- register is set and the way the show version presents what image is running and where the image is loaded.

Errrrr ... You're not confusing yourself with the version of the IOS versus the version of the bootstrap, are you?
