SCCM 2012 - PXESetup.log file? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we are looking for the PXESetup.log file in SCCM 2012.

    We tried to look for it on the primary/secondary and even dedicated distribution point but couldn't find it anywhere.

    In case there's a problem with PXE setup we couldn't find any errors related to that install.

  • I'm pretty sure there is no pxesetup.log. Because PXE is now simply part of the DP, there's nothing dedicated to its setup.

    From http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh427342.aspx#BKMK_OSDLog :

    Distmgr.log

    Records details about the configuration of enabling a distribution point for PXE.

  • If you look under the folder SMS_DP$ -> sms -> logs, there's a logfile called smsdpprov.log.

    There you should be able to see the PXE installation.

  • Hi,

    Have you looked in the the C:\windows or Windows\system32 directory? I think I remeber reading somewhere that the log file could be created there instead.

    Regards,

  • Actually the SMSPXE.log still exists.

    C:\Program Files\SMS_CCM\Logs

    The above discussion was not about smspxe.log, it was about pxesetup.log which was a distinct log file in 2007 that tracked the initial setup of PXE services. The information above is correct.
