With a few reports of installation failures of Operations Manager 2012 in the forums, I wanted to share a bit of important troubleshooting information – where detailed logging of OpsMgr 2012 installation process can be found.
Logs are located in the %LocalAppData%\SCOM\Logs directory for the account under which installation was run. On a default installation on Windows 2008 R2, that would be c:\users\<UserName>\Appdata\Local\SCOM\Logs where <UserName> is the name of the account you used to run the installation.
Logs and Log Contents
The table below provides a brief description of log files and their contents.
|OpsMgrSetupWizard.log||Reports activity and progress of setup wizard. (Detailed logging of specific features is available in logs listed below.)|
|SCOMPrereqCheck.log||XML output of the prerequisite checker.|
|OMReporting.log||Logs progress of installation of the reporting feature|
|OMConsole.log||Verbose logging of installation of the Operations console|
|OMServer.log||Verbose logging of installation of the mgmt server role|
|WebConsole.log||Verbose logging of installation of the Web console|
|SetupX.log||Detailed logging of installation progress (where X is 0 for first attempt and incremented once for each subsequent attempt). If you attempt to install multiple times, multiple files will exist…setup0.log, setup1.log, etc. etc.|
