It means that the dbcis16.dll that the server found and loaded does not exactly match the build number of the server that loaded it. You can use procmon to see what DLL the server is loading and, in Windows Explorer, you can look at the build number of dbcis16.dll by looking at Details tab of the file properties.

Apparently, a mucked up install involving the Nagano Beta was the culprit (see screenshot below). Uninstalling/deleting SA16 and then reinstalling GA plus EBF solved the problem.
