Phase. 1st Phase how to validate on client side

Troubleshooting hardware inventory in SCCM is to look at the client log files, specifically the InventoryAgent.log. The full path for the log file is C:\Windows\CCM\Logs. Another thing you have to note, is that SCCM will never actually show that the “hardware inventory” is taking place. Instead it uses its Global Unique Identifier (GUID) to specify which inventory cycle is taking place. Below is table shown for easier reference.

Go to the Client Log location C:\Windows\CCM\Logs à AgentInventory.log with the help of CMTrace log view in AgenInventory.log: Opening store for action {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001}. You will see below thing on Logs.

If you scroll down you will see in inventory agent logs.

Next we have to validate that process MP_HinvEndpoint is moved to next steps open log CcmMessaging.log.

You will see that Message Payload transfer completed

Now we got to know that client is sending to Management Points. Let’s have phase 2 How to validate on Serverside.
