Windows Server 2008 Server Manager uses the log files for logging of installation and removal of roles and features. This is very useful when you need to diagnose a failure on Server Core or Full installation of Windows Server 2008.
The log file in Server Core is different from Full installation Server Manager. This is listed below:
- When installing and removing roles or features in Server Core, the activity is logged in CBS.LOG
- When installing and removing roles or features in Full installation, the activity is logged in ServerManager.log
