Michael over at The Deployment Bunny has posted a good article on SCVMM logs, check it out.
It happens that you need to find issues, yes, trust me it happens even for me… and here is how:
To enable VMM debug logging, use the following steps:
- Create a folder called C:\vmmlogs.
- Open an elevated PowerShell window on the VMM server or host computer and run the following commands (the second command may wrap in your display):
logman delete VMM
logman create trace VMM -v mmddhhmm -o $env:SystemDrive\VMMlogs\VMMLog_$env:computername.ETL -cnf 01:00:00 -p Microsoft-VirtualMachineManager-Debug -nb 10 250 -bs 16 -max 512 -a
- Start the trace by typing the following command in the elevated PowerShell window:
logman start vmm
- Reproduce your issue.
- As soon as you reproduce your issue, stop the trace by typing:
logman stop vmm
- Switch to C:\vmmlogs.
- To convert the trace, type the command:
Netsh trace convert <filename>
- Read file, find issue, fix, have a nice day.
