How to enable Advance logging in IIS for ITSI module in other location?

Contributor

We are trying to take IIS logs in ITSI but cannot enable advanced logging. Is there a option where we can store advance logging in different location and take data from that location. Is it possible to store data twice using configuration in IIS manager.
We are using splunk add-on for Microsoft IIS.
Referred to the link below, but cannot enable all mentioned logs because those logs are also used by other application.

I would read more about the Splunk Add on for Microsoft IIS.

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/AddOns/released/MSIIS/About

Verify where your IIS logs are writing to:

Standard logs default directory: %SystemDrive%\inetpub\logs\LogFiles

Advanced logs default directory: %SystemDrive%\inetpub\logs\AdvancedLogs

You should be able to configure your inputs.conf to accept both standard logs and advanced

Example inputs.conf:

[monitor://C:\inetpub\logs\AdvancedLogs]
disabled = false
sourcetype = ms:iis:auto

[monitor://C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles]
disabled = false
sourcetype = ms:iis:auto

They also mention this article to enable Advanced Logging on your IIS server

Is your issue getting advanced IIS logs into Splunk? Or you need to send them to two locations?

We want to store advanced logging enabled data to other location, so we can take data into Splunk from this location.
