Location logfiles during Task Sequence WinPE

During the Task Sequence you can check for a log file smst.log which allow you troubleshooting of operating system failures:
It depending on deployment phase, SMSTS.log file will have the location below:


During OSD

Windows PE (WinPE) -Before the harddisk is formatted and partitionedx:\windows\temp\smstslog\smsts.log
Windows PE (WinPE) – After harddisk formattedx:\smstslog\smsts.log and will copied to C:\_SMSTaskSequence\Logs\Smstslog\smsts.log

After OSD and when the Operation System is installed

Operating System – Before SCCM agent is installedC:\_SMSTaskSequence\Logs\Smstslog\smsts.log
Windows 32 bit – after SCCM agent is installedC:\windows\system32\ccm\logs\Smstslog\smsts.log
Windows 64 bit – after SCCM agent is installedC:\windows\sysWOW64\ccm\logs\Smstslog\smsts.log

After Task Sequence is complete

Windows 32 bitC:\windows\system32\ccm\logs\smsts.log
Windows 64 bitC:\windows\sysWOW64\ccm\logs\smsts.log

Best practice

You can copy the SMSTS.log file to a USB key for troubleshooting.
When the error appears in WinPE, click on F8 to display the command prompt window.

Use xcopy to copy the logfile from local to usb key.
