IIS 8.5 Support for Advanced Logging Module? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1833070709 posted

    Hello, running Windows 2012 R2 64-bit with IIS 8.5. I am in need of features in the Advanced Logging module, but nowhere on the readme page does it say the module is supported on this OS.



    <content xmlns="http://ddue.schemas.microsoft.com/authoring/2003/5"></content>

    The following prerequisites must be fulfilled to install IIS Advanced Logging:

    • You must use IIS 7 running on one of the following operating systems:
      • Windows Server 2008
      • Windows Server 2008 R2
      • Windows Vista with SP1
      • Windows 7

    Is there an equivalent for IIS 8.5 planned, or is this really working and supported on 8.5 already?

    This module can be installed and configured on IIS 8.5. You can find it in Web Platform Installer.

    I know this post is rather old.  However, I was trying to use the PI to install on a window 10 machine and the install failed (IIS7 required).  What are my options?  I am trying to import an IIS7 Pkg to migrate my old dev machine.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The reason Advanced Logging doesn't show IIS 8.5 is because IIS has built-in support for enhanced logging. More information can be found here: http://www.iis.net/learn/get-started/whats-new-in-iis-85/enhanced-logging-for-iis85

    The advanced logging 1.0 MSI allowed you to set defaults, so that any new sites created after I ran a series of update-webconfiguration commands, the new sites would inherit that setting.


    (Update-WebConfiguration -Action 'Add' -Filter '/system.webServer/advancedLogging/server' -Name 'fields' -Value '@{id="REMOTEADDRESS";sourceName="REMOTEADDRESS";sourceType="RequestHeader";logHeaderName="";category="Default";description="";defaultValue="";loggingDataType="TypeLPCSTR"}')

    Does the built-in advanced logging feature allow this and if not, does the AL 1.0 MSI still work and install on IIS 10 running on Windows 2016?
