I'm new so I apologize if this topic has been beaten to death. My company has many domain controllers with SMS. The system partitions are only 10GB and are filling up every few months largely due to IIS logs. I would like to point the logs to D:\ drive
and purge them every 60-90 days. I could manually logon and do this on each one, but has anyone created an automated way to configure (via script) the logs directory. I'm hoping to have a script that will accept a servers.txt file or something of the like
that it can execute against. Any help or direction is greatly appreciated....I've googled this and didn't find relevant info...

Here is a tool I wrote that is free and allows you to zip and / or just delete them..

Here is another thread that has a good VBS Script that uses 'gzip' to compress the logs.

Let me know if you have any issues using the one I posted on my blog.

Wouldn't it be nice if Microsoft added the ability to delete old logfiles without having to resort to a script or third party tool? With all the nice stuff they build, I am so surprised that they have never seemed to think of that addition to the logging
options in IIS.

You can delete them by hand

you are correct. Just deleted and iis created a new one automatically
