How to check BRTOOLS version

Some SAP Basis newbies ask me about how to know which version they are using right now. Although I am not SAP Basis expert, I'll try to get information to you.
You can follow this step :

Enter your SAP system on OS. You can use root (for UNIX/Linux) and Administrator (on Windows system). I am going to guide you on UNIX/Linux only system.

Switch you user to ora[sid] user :

#su - oraids

Type this command :

>brtools -V

You'll see something like this :

host:oraids 1> brtools -V
BR0651I BRTOOLS 6.40 (40)
