There are a couple of ways to do this. I think that if you are going to script it, though, the easiest way would be to just write a script that parses the Exchange server setup progress.log file, which is in the root of the boot drive on all of your Exchange servers. In that log, you'll find an entry on Standard systems that says "This is a(n) standard version of Microsoft Exchange 2000." Of course, the Enterprise Edition will identify itself as the Enterprise Edition.
