I am using a script to update the machine policy remotely.  I need to verify that it is working, can someone point me in the right direction as to where I should be looking.  I am not sure what log file would tell me when the computer last did a machine policy update.

Hello wheelinghd,

You'll be able to verify a Machine Policy update has occurred or at least been initiated within the client's PolicyAgent.log found in \\computername\admin$\system32\CCM\logs\PolicyAgent.log.

You'll notice text that's similar to this:

Requesting Machine policy assignments
Requesting policy from authority 'SMS:[site]'
Raising event...etc..etc...
