    are all log files enabled by default ? Im looking for the CIDM.LOG file and I cannot find it on my site server.

    • Mai Ali says:

      Yes, but that’s according to features that you installed it. for example, if you didn’t configure PXE role and deploy operating system using sccm so that you won’t find the logs related to PXE and OS and so on.
      The SCCM server log files are located in the: \Logs or SMS_CCM\Logs folder
