This post will help you find these logs whether they are on your HardDisk or before they are transferred on the deployed machine.

  • Windows – No Client Installed —>>> c:\_SMSTaskSequence\Logs\Smstslog\smsts.log
  • Windows x64 – Client Installed —>>> c:\windows\sysWOW64\ccm\logs\Smstslog\smsts.log
  • Windows x86 – Client Installed —>>> c:\windows\system32\ccm\logs\Smstslog\smsts.log
