A question for those who have successfully silently deployed SAS using SCCM:
I know the SAS Deployment Wizard creates a file sas.mig in the Temp directory (which I learned is the Temp directory of the currently connected user i.e. C:\Users\connected-user\AppData\Local\Temp). I'd like to use this file to check whether or not my silent installation succeeded or failed.
When deploying SAS using the SYSTEM account (which is what SCCM uses), where does this file get created, if it gets created? There is no directory for the SYSTEM account in C:\Users on Windows 7 x64. Do I have to manually create the folder structure AppData\Local\Temp in %windir%\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile in order to read the contents?
Once again, thank you for your help.

a very good question. I can make some guesses but I don't know exactly the answer.
But maybe you can do a quick test and keep track of the files created by the process?

Thank you @m_oversteyns! Feel curious about the outcome of your investigations. Yours is a great idea.
By the way: try the ‐templocation parameter. That might solve your question.

SCCM should report the success/failure of deployment. My understanding is that you want to check failure messages, if it fails.
You can use "-loglevel 2 -datalocation C:\temp\SAS_logs" arguments with SAS setup.exe command line.
