Where is the web.config for a load balanced server? RRS feed

    We have Load Balancing (ARR) set up on IIS 6.2 on Server 2012 R2 Datacenter.  I am trying to set up some redirect rules on the ARR server (rather than directly on any of the actual 5 IIS servers where the website is hosted) but I'm running into trouble and the rules are not working properly. 

    I know that if you create the rules via the IIS GUI directly on one of the actual IIS servers (not the ARR server) that it modifies the web.config file.  When people post questions such as "Why isn't this rule working?" they post the section from the web.config.  But when I'm creating the rules on the ARR server... IS there a web.config that is modified?  And if so, where is it?

    This should be in the applicationhost.config file if you are creating the rules at the server level rather than the web site level. The applicationhost.config file is located at c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\config. The rules are located in the <rewrite> section of the file.
