SCCM 2007 - Software Distribution MIF Status

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have a package that I wrote back when we were using SMS 2003.  The package creates a status MIF file.  The package still works great in our SMS 2003 environment.  However, it seems like the MIF files is not being picked up by SCCM in the c:\windows\temp directory (like it was in SMS 2003 on the client).

    Anyway, I was wondering how to troubleshoot this...  Do MIF package status files still work in SCCM 2007?

    Also, is it possible to turn on verbose or enhanced logging on the SCCM client?  I noticed that there is some information regarding the mif file in the execmgr.log on the client.  Through it does not say much...

    This is the contents of the mif:  (and I have set the reporting properties of the package to UPTIME1.mif and UPTIME1 on all other lines in the reporting tab)

    I'm wondering if I can turn on enhanced logging that I might be able to figure out why it is not working...
