Scenario: You have extracted, or previously used and subsequently found, a SUM directory on your SAP system.
This is production and you don’t want to start SUM on this system.
You want to know what version of SUM it is.
You can check the manifest.mf file for the SUM version without needing to start SUM:
> cd <SUM PATH>SUM
> more summanifest.mf
