Which of the many logs can I look at to see when an SCCM client last tried to do Software Updates?

I've tried to track this down and hit a lot of dead ends.

SCCM 2012, although the logs are still in %windir%\CCM\Logs

By default, the SCCM Client checks in every 15 minutes to report it’s status back to SCCM, but only once per hour to get a policy update.
Per this:  http://public.madeinengland.co.nz/how-often-does-the-sccm-client-check-in/


So, the best place to look would be the WUAHandler.log

There are also several supporting logs that could probably help out with the WUAHandler as well on that link I posted:

We are seeing TLS/SSL errors once every Monday morning on every server.  I am trying to find what log I can find this in.

It is happening to all of our servers in CM, but none not in CM.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Thanks.  I am trying to find anything else that could be the same.


I saw that software deployment defaulted to Monday at 3am.  The UpdatesDeployment log file doesn't have much either.

I saw your other post about that Schannel error.  Let me do some looking/researching and I'll try to come up with something.  Typically Schannel on 2008 or 2003 meant that the server had a problem with its machine account password on the DC, but that isn't the case with your other question.

Anyway, like I said, give me a little bit and I'll see what I can come up with.
