To make certain the logging mechanism used by the web server has sufficient storage capacity in which to write the logs, the logging mechanism must be able to allocate log record storage capacity.

The task of allocating log record storage capacity is usually performed during initial installation of the logging mechanism. The system administrator will usually coordinate the allocation of physical drive space with the web server administrator along with the physical location of the partition and disk. Refer to NIST SP 800-92 for specific requirements on log rotation and storage dependent on the impact of the web server.


Follow the procedures below for each site hosted on the IIS 10.0 web server:

Under 'IIS' double-click on the 'Logging' icon.

If necessary, in the 'Logging' configuration box, redesignate a log path to a location able to house the logs.

Under 'Log File Rollover', deselect the 'Do not create new log files' setting.

Configure a schedule to rollover log files on a regular basis.
