When setting up Exchange Server or any other Enterprise application that provides IIS services (i.e. SharePoint), it might be a requirement to change the default folder path für IIS log files to a different location than the default location (C:inetpblogs). Even though todays physical or virtual system drives are in the 100GB range, it might be a design requirement to have the folder path placed on a different volume.
Especially when you have to configure more than one server, you prefer to have configurations implemented by script.
The script Set-Webserver.ps1 provides in its current release the configuration of:
- IIS log folder path
- IIS log period
- Local time filename and rollover configuration
Additional configurations, like logExtFileFlags, logFormat, truncateSize, can be implemented, if required.
The script runs on Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2.
