MDT : MDT Log Files

The log save locations move around depending on what stage of the OS build we are looking at.  This is a breakdown of the log locations during a MDT install task sequence:

1. Before the Image is applied to the machine:

X:\MININT\SMSOSD\OSDLOGS

2. After the system drive has been formatted:

C:\MININT\SMSOSD\OSDLOGS

3. After Deployment:

%WINDIR%\TEMP\DeploymentLogs

The logs of most interest for troubleshooting a failed install will be:

BDD.LOG – This is an aggregated log of all the MDT Logs.

SMSTS.LOG – This log would be used to troubleshoot Task Sequence errors.

Also note that each MDT ZTI script creates its own log files during execution (example: ZTIGather.log, ZTIDiskpart.log, ZTIDrivers.log, etc)
