uname -r

gives you the kernel release version.

On my notebook I run the server version and the results of the above
command are:

3.0.0-14-server

One important thing you should know is that on any client distribution
also, if you install the packages, which server uses, you can very
well use the system as server and it also becomes server.

Well, that depends on your definition of 'sever' and 'client'. There is
a 'server' and a 'client' installer, but all they do is define the
default packages and some default configuration - every possible system
configuration is possible both from a server and a client install.

You can't tell from the uname command. There are differences in the
default kernel that the server and the client versions ship; the
easiest way there is probably to use dpkg:

dpkg -l | grep linux-image

Will list all the linux kernel images you have installed; if you've
ones whose names end in '-server' then you're running a server kernel.
But it's entirely possible to install this kernel onto a client.

What's the problem you're trying to solve here - for what do you need
to discern between servers and clients? Perhaps there's a more
appropriate way for the particular task you're working on.

> also how would you know which version of server is installed and running?

If you run

cat /etc/lsb-release

You'll get the version data (which is saved into the
file /etc/lsb-release) printed to screen.
