smspxe.log not updating after resetting multicast on DP due to R2 install
Where are you looking for the log? After R2 it moved:

We have upgraded to 2012 R2. Because multicast was not working any more I had to uninstall/install multicast on DP.

Since that moment smspxe.log will not get update, restart WDS dos not help.

Any ideas where to look ?

Thanks in advance,

Thank you Jason for this hint !

I was looking in the right directory, but since we have added a huge DFS share  the smspxe.log is was placed on that share L .

What more: the new smspxe.log  was NOT placed in in \SMS_DP$\SMS\Logs but in  \SMS_CCM\Logs on the DFS share.

The registry key SMSPXE logPath is very useful (not) and contains the following : Smspxe.log

Your hint made me look on the DFS share which normally I would not do. I have found the logfile there !

But still, what is the correct path of smspxe.log ?
