Archive (Backup and Delete) IIS Logs in SharePoint

7:38 PM    , , , ,
IIS logs are the requests from clients, and written into text-based log files. It captures every web page/image/script requests. By default, IIS logs stored in C:\ of WFE servers. If SharePoint is being accessed a lot, It may cause disk space problem for your OS drive so quickly. So we can change this log path. Here is how: Go into IIS Manager for each WFE. (Start > run > Inetmgr) select the server name in the Connections panel on the left. In the Features view shown in the middle panel, select Logging. For the log file, change the directory to a more suitable drive and folder. For example, I’ve changed the path for the log files to D:\Logs\IIS. How about backing up them Monthly and deleting old logs? Its a good idea to backup and clean IIS Logs every Month. These Logs are highly compressible up to 500%!!! (Meaning 500 MB file to 5MB file). Steps: 1. Download and import the PowerShell community Extension (for write-zip cmd-let) 2. Write the script to Zip and Delete
