Hi,
Im writing a script to move IIS logs onto central storage for analysis. The problem is that we have 100s of sites and the log file directories are not standard. What Id like to do is enumerate these directories using WM. Ive looked @ the MicrosoftIISV2 namespace but am unable to find the class that contains this information?? Is there any other namespace or class that holds this info or have I missed something?

Thanks
Gary

Stab in the semi-lit dark....How about utilizing the IIS metabase for the info?

I have this, but now need to loop through all other virtual directories by web site ID

Dim IISOBJ, Servername, WebSiteID
ServerName = "localhost"
WebSiteID = 1
Set IISOBJ = GetObject("IIS://" & ServerName & "/W3SVC/" & WebSiteID)
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(IISOBJ.LogFileDirectory & "\W3SVC1")
WScript.Echo "LogFileDirectory          : " & IISOBJ.LogFileDirectory & "\W3SVC1"

IIS MVP Chris Crowe writes a lot of scripts regarding logging.  Here is a link to one that is a bit overkill, but from his site, you may be able to find something that suits you better, or adapt the one at the link.
