Not finding Custom Log Files RRS feed

  • User1992114054 posted

    Hello, I am using Windows Server 2012, running IIS 8.5.

    My Web Servers are behind a Load Balancer, and I would like my Log Files to include the IP Address of the original machine making the web-request instead of the Load Balancer.

    I have set this up on the Load Balancer so that in the Request Header we are sending an X-Forwarded-For.  I have set up IIS so that this field is included in the Logging Fields.  

    My understanding is that IIS should create a log file with the name ending in _x that would include the custom fields.

    However, I am not seeing the log file with the custom fields.  I can see the normal log file (without the _x), but that file doesn't include the custom fields, and I can't find a similar log file ending in _x in the directory.  Am I missing something?
