In SBS Essentials the location of the log files is under C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Server\Logs. From a support perspective this can be very handy as you will always know where the log file will be located. We have compiled a list of important logs and their associated wizards below. Please note that there are a few wizards which refer to one or more logs. C:\ProgramData is hidden by default. Please use Folder Options in Windows Explorer to unhide it.

Few relevant log files on the Windows SBS 2011 Essentials Client: The log files for the Vista and later clients are located in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Server\Logs.

Windows Server Solutions Log Collector Tool is an efficient way to collect all of the logs and can be downloaded here.
You can get to the log files with one click from the Advanced Admin Console 2011 AddIn's Task pane: www.home-server-addins.com/.../advanced-admin-console-2011-features
Really a good article to share the logging file about different kinds of features. It will help us to identify the logging purpose from lots of logging file. Cool~ :-)
