Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
For SEO-related issues, we have chosen to utilize sub domains to assist our rankings and so on within a particular internal project we have recently produced and launched.
Yesterday though, amidst setting up Webtrends reporting on this particular website, I ran into some issues. Because we are using sub domains, our server is set up to use a different IP address per site (I configured IIS to see each sub domain as it's own website). We are running NT 4.0 as a server, and have IIS as the management console. And, when I attempt to accumulate all of the log files, Webtrends gives me an error saying that it appears as though I am combining logs from various websites into one report, and that I need add-on software. Which, I cannot purchase because our Webtrends license is used on a colocated server that we lease out.
So, is there a way to fool WT into reporting them all as one? I know that it is helpful to see them separately anyways, but I am simply curious as I would like to get a quick view automated for my morning stat-checking...
Also, does anyone know how to reliably block out all reporting of code-red related requests? I had thought that using an exclusion filter and excluding *.ida and *.exe would be perfect, but it seemingly only works on ONE site profile. Not good!
Thanks in advance to anyone who may be of assistance!
You could edit the log file to replace the "Computer name" and "IP address of server" fields with a constant values for all of your subdomains.
The IIS log format is documented here [microsoft.com]
