There are status messages recorded for almost all parts of Configuration Manager. While these status messages are not easily accessible through the Configuration Manager Console, they are made easily available as right click options. Refer to the following video for a detailed overview: Status Message Overview

Contents

Deployment Status Messages

Available for:

  1. Package Deployments
    1. Shows when deployment is received, started, and completed for each computer
  2. Task Sequence Deployments
    1. Shows live information for every step of the task sequence running on each computer

The newer deployments (applications, baselines, software update groups) only give state information, not status information, so detailed information is not available.

This will show up when right clicking on deployments on the Monitoring node, the deployment tab of the object, and the deployment tab of the collection.

Distribution Point Status Messages

Shows content and configuration messages related to the selected distribution point. PXE messages are not shown in this view.

This will show up when right clicking on Distribution Points on the Administration node, and under Distribution Point Configuration Status on the Monitoring node.

PXE Status Messages

Shows information for each PXE boot on selected Distribution Point. You will see which boot image was given to the computer, why it was given (which deployment determined it), and the MAC address of the computer.

This will show up when right clicking on Distribution Points on the Administration node, and under Distribution Point Configuration Status on the Monitoring node.

Content Status Messages

Shows all content status messages for the selected item. You'll see when it starts transferring to each distribution point and if it was successful or not.

This will show up when right clicking on content on the Monitoring tab, on each item with content (applications, packages, deployment packages, boot images, etc...), and Task Sequence references.
