How to check what server role sharepoint server is running

Title: How to check what server role sharepoint server is running

Description:

Open regedit and check the value under the  following key :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0\WSS\ServerRole

If it is SharePoint 2010 then navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\WSS\ServerRole


The values you would see would be: WFE, APPLICATION, SINGLESERVER

What all these value means :

WFE - Windows SharePoint Services Web Application (no search , no excel, no ssp, this is just a web server)

APPLICATION –Everything (and you can add the server to a farm)

SINGLESERVER –Everything (but you cannot add the server to a farm , and most probably  you have MSDE or SQL Server Express on the box as well)
