System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Support Center helps you to gather information about System Center 2012 Configuration Manager clients, so that you can more easily address issues with those clients when working with product support specialists.Configuration Manager Support Center includes a tool that gathers a bundle of log files, and also a tool that is used by product support specialists to examine log files and other client data for in-depth analysis of issues with Configuration Manager clients.When the log is full, the file is copied to a file of the same name but with the .lo_ extension, and the process or component continues to write to the file.When the file again reaches its maximum size, the .lo_ file is overwritten and the process repeats.
Support Center also includes Power Shell cmdlets that can be used to create a remote connection to another Configuration Manager client, to configure the data collection options provided on the Data Collection tab, and to start data collection.
