SCCM Log files

Updated on :  03/02/2015
Relevant to:   SCCM 2007, SCCM 2012 (including R2 and R3 versions)


 

 

Log locations

SCCM logs are stored on different locations depending on OS architecture, client or server, version of SCCM and during different stages of a task sequence.

 

SCCM 2007 client log file locations:

x86 OS:                                                        C:\Windows\System32\CCM\Logs

x64 OS:                                                        C:\Windows\SysWOW64\CCM\Logs

Client install logs x86:                                  C:\Windows\System32\CCMSetup

Client install logs x64:                                  C:\Windows\SysWOW64\CCMSetup

TS – WindowsPE, before HDD format:         X:\Windows\Temp\Smstslog

TS – WindowsPE, after HDD format:            X:\Smsts\log

TS – Windows, prior to SCCM agent install: C:\_SMSTaskSequenceLogs\Smstslog

 

SCCM 2012 client log file locations:

All OS’s:                                                        C:\Windows\CCM\Logs

Client install logs:                                          C:\Windows\CCMSetup\Logs

TS – WindowsPE, before HDD format:         X:\Windows\Temp\Smstslog

TS – WindowsPE, after HDD format:            X:\Smsts\log

TS – Windows, prior to SCCM agent install: C:\_SMSTaskSequenceLogs\Smstslog

 

SCCM 2007 & 2012 Server logs

Server Logs:                                                  <install location>\Logs (e.g. D:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs)

Management Point Logs:                               <Program files of install drive>\SMS_CCM\Logs (e.g. D:\Program Files\SMS_CCM\Logs)


 

 

Reading Logs

Logs can be opened with any text editor, however utilising the SMS/SCCM tools called Trace32.exe or CMTrace.exe can help with effectively monitoring these logs.

CMTrace is an updated and renamed version of Trace32.

Trace32 comes with the SMS Toolkit 2 (for reference) – http://www.microsoft.com/en-AU/download/details.aspx?id=18153

CMTrace comes with CM 2012 R2 Toolkit – http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=36213

 

Additionally, with SCCM 2012 R2/Windows PE 5, CMTrace.exe is built into the boot wim’s by default at

x64 – x:\sms\bin\x64\CMTrace.exe

x86 – x:\sms\bin\i386\CMTrace.exe

 


 

Using logs to troubleshoot common issues

Client not showing up in SCCM console

  • Check the client is installed
    • If you are physically at the machine, simply check that control panel | configuration manager exists
    • If you are remote, check C:\Windows\CCM\Logs\Ccmsetup.log
    • In a healthy install, you will see similar to:
    • SCCMLogs1
    • If you have a return code other than “0” – search the log for the issue
  • If the client is installed, check ClientIDManagerStartup.log
    • We use this log to determine if the client is able to register
    • A healthy SCCM client will have these entries in the log
    • SCCMLogs2
    • Or
    • SCCMLogs3
    • If the client is sending a registration request, but is unable to register
      • Search for the client in the SCCM console, add the “approved” column, if the client is not approved, approve it
      • Check LocationServices.log
        • You may see errors in this log that relate to
          • Not publishing site location information in AD
          • Not having a boundary setup for the AD site of IP subnet this client is in

 

You get the point. There are bucketloads of logs to check in SCCM – and knowing which one is the right one simply takes time and experience. However, that’s where google – and possible the list below of all log files, will be able to help you.

 

List of log files

A complete list of log files can be found at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh427342.aspx

However, for ease, I have dumped them into a single table – available below.  Some of the data has been abbreviated to try and make it work in a table… but the abbreviations will make sense to SCCM admins – if not, I suggest you refer back to the TechNet doco link above.
