yellow

Internet Information Services (IIS) Web sites that use HTTP rely on several important IIS components for their availability. The Windows Process Activation Service (WAS), the World Wide Publishing Service (W3SVC), the HTTP service, all must be running correctly. In addition, a properly running application pool must be available for the Web site’s applications. If any of these components is not functioning, the Web site will not be available.

Event Details

Product: Internet Information Services
ID: 1032
Source: Microsoft-Windows-IIS-W3SVC
Version: 7.0
Symbolic Name: W3SVC_EVENT_LOG_DIRECTORY_MAPPED_NETWORK_DRIVE
Message: The World Wide Web Publishing Service (WWW Service) did not configure logging properties for site %1. The site's log file directory path may be a mapped network path. Using a mapped network path as the site's log file directory is not supported by IIS. Use a UNC path instead.

Resolve

Set a valid log directory path

To resolve this, edit the logging path for the Web Site so that it has the following characteristics:

  • The computer name or share name in the file path must be valid.
  • If a remote drive is needed, specify a UNC Path. Mapped drives must are not supported.
  • The computer account of the front-end Web server must have permissions on the specified path.
  • The directory path specified must exist and be fully qualified. To edit the path, use the following procedure.

To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To edit the log file path for a Site:

  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Administrative Tools.
  2. Right-click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and select Run as administrator.
  3. In the Connections pane, select the Web site whose logging you have to configure.
  4. In Features View, click Logging. The Logging window appears.
  5. In the Logging window, make sure that the log directory that is specified meets the criteria specified in this procedure.
  6. In the Actions pane, click Apply.

Verify

To verify that a Web site is started, you can use either IIS Manager or the appcmd command line utility.

To perform these procedures, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To verify that the Web site is started by using the appcmd command line utility:

  1. Open an elevated Command Prompt window. Click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  2. Change the directory to %SystemDrive%\Windows\System32\inetsrv.
  3. Run the following command: appcmd.exe list site -site.name:"Site Name". If the Web site is started, the output will resemble the following:

        SITE "Default Web Site" (id:1,bindings:http/*:80:,state:Started)

To verify that the Web site is started by using IIS Manager:

  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Administrative Tools.
  2. Right-click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and select Run as administrator.
  3. In the Connections pane, expand the computer name.
