has two types of log files with which you can monitor information
about deployments and installations.
Network log. The network log file keeps
a record of all workstations that run the deployment. On the Write
to Log page of the deployment process, you choose whether or not to
create a network log file. The log lists the user name, workstation
name, and the status of the installation. Refer to this file for
status information and details about problems that users may have
encountered during installation (for example, low disk space or
inadequate permissions). The network log is named with the same
name you chose for your deployment. You can specify where the log
file is created by entering either a valid UNC (universal naming
convention) path or hard-coded path on your network, for example
where the network log resides must be a shared folder where users
who install the program have Change permissions. Otherwise,
successes or failures for user installations cannot be written to
the log file.
Client log. The client log contains
detailed installation information for each workstation. This
information may be useful in diagnosing installation problems. The
client log is located in the \Temp directory
of each client workstation.
To specify a
log file location
While creating a deployment, on the Write to Log page, select
the check box next to the Create Network Log box. Enter the name of
the folder where you want the network log to be located.
If you want to create a client log, select the Create Client
