QuickTricks: Where are the agent install logs?
While doing a test deployment on the upcoming OpsMgr R2 release I was debugging why some of my agents were not deploying and I couldn’t find my agent installation logs to see what was causing the issue. These are created on the management server which the agent will be reporting to. So as an example, I have an RMS (Root Management Server), MS1 (Management Server), MS2, GW1 (Gateway Server), and GW. In my case they were on the MS1 server which the agent was told to report to via AD Integration.
Summary: The install logs are located on the Management Server which is actually installing the agent in the C:\program files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\AgentManagement\AgentLogs folder.
