  • Try setting in your customsettings.ini rule file the following: 


    Replace MDTServer with your MDT DNS server name.

    Of course you need to create the Logs$ share and set proper permissions

    It will copy the deployment log files at the end of the deployment to that location.

    Then look in ZTIUserState.log

    If you need real-time debugging consider using the SLShareDynamicLogging property

    You can use both:

  • thanks thomas,

    is only USMT logs will be save to network  or all the MDT deployment logs will be?

    Also on  machines Is all the deployment logs will be saved to c:\windows\temp after complete Deployment as normally?

  • All the MDT logs will be saved to the network and will remain on the machines as well.
