Config Mgr 2012 - OSD task Sequence log files

When running Configuration manager Task Sequence, it can be extremly frustrating trying to find ever moving log files if you get an error during OS.

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

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

Task Sequence Storage                                                                         Log location
WinPE - Before HD Format                                                    x:\windows\temp\smstslog\smsts.log

WindPE - After HD format                                                  x:\smstslog\smsts.log

Windows no client installed                                              c:\_smstasksequence\logs\smstslog\smsts.log

Windows - x86 client installed                               c:\windows\system32\ccm\logs\smstslog\smsts.log

Windows - x64 client installed                            c:\windows\sysWOW64\ccm\logs\smstslog\smsts.log

Task Sequence completed x86                          c:\windows\system32\ccm\logs\smsts.log

Task Sequence completed x64                          c:\windows\system32\ccm\logs\smsts.log

This should not allow you to be able to quickly and easily find your task sequence log files during any stage of deployment.
