Save Software Inventory Scan XML Files

Posted on

Sometimes when troubleshooting SCCM client software inventory, it is useful to retain the XML file which contains details on what the scan discovered.  To do this, simply create a file named “archive_reports.sms” within C:\WINDOWS\system32\CCM\Inventory\temp\.  If the scan is just reporting a delta, the file will be small.  But if it is a full SINV scan, then it could be large (the biggest I’ve seen is around 75 MB)
