Open Client Installation Log File Folder

The Open Client Installation Log Folder tool allows a console user to open the file location of the client install log on a remote device. This tool can be run on single devices or multi-selected devices. This tool cannot currently be run on a device collection.

This tool completes this action via Filesystem.

To run this tool:

1. In your Configuration Manager console, right-click on a device.

2. Click Right Click Tools > Client Tools > Open Client Installation Log Folder.

The folder containing the client install log will open.

  • This action requires that the user running the console have permissions to browse the c$ share on the remote device.
  • Typically, this means the user requires administrator permissions on the remote device.

NOTE: This is the case even if using a Recast Server with a service account because this action launches an application outside of Recast. If the user does not have permission, a prompt will open asking for a username and password to try to successfully connect to the remote device.
