Configuration Manager 2012 – Where are my OSD Task Sequence Log Files?

TGH Blank Thumbnail

When running Configuration Manager OSD Task Sequences, it can be extremely frustrating trying to find the ever moving log files if you get an error during the deployment.

The log files move locations on your hard disk depending on what stage of deployment your task sequence is at.

To try and help you find where your task sequence log files are please see the table below:

Task Sequence Stage

WinPE – Before HD Format

WinPE – After HD Format

Windows – No Client Installed

Windows x86 – Client Installed

Windows x64 – Client Installed

Task Sequence Completed x86

Task Sequence Completed x64

Log Location

c:windowssystem32ccmlogsSmstslogsmsts.log

c:windowssysWOW64ccmlogsSmstslogsmsts.log

c:windowssystem32ccmlogssmsts.log

c:windowssysWOW64ccmlogssmsts.log

This should now allow you to be able to quickly and easily find your task sequence log files during any stage of deployment.
