          Hello,

           

          The log on the target machine that would contain that info depends on whether you're using agents or deploying agentlessly through the console.  The entry you'll look for looks very similar either way.

           

          For agentless deployments, you'll look for an entry in C:\Windows\ProPatches\Logs\STDeploy.log that looks like this:

          <timestamp>SingleFileDownload.cpp:209 Copied \\<DistributionServerName>\<FolderPath>\<PatchName> to C:\WINDOWS\ProPatches\Patches\<PatchName>

           

          For an agent deployment, you'll look for an entry in C:\ProgramData\LANDESK\Shavlik Protect\Logs\STPatch.log that looks like this:

          <timestamp>SingleFileDownload.cpp:209 Copied \\<DistributionServerName>\<FolderPath>\<PatchName> to C:\Windows\Temp\<RandomFolderName>\<PatchName>

           

          That will show you where the files are being pulled from.  If you're having issues getting target machines to pull from the right place, feel free to open a support case and we'll be happy to help out as well.

           

          Thanks,

          Brian
