SYMPTOMS

When you try to use an ISAPI filter to set IIS log parameters in Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0, you cannot change the cs-uri-stem field or the cs-username field in an IIS log. Additionally, incorrect strings appear in the cs-uri-stem field and in the cs-username field.

Note This problem does not occur in earlier versions of IIS.

CAUSE

This issue occurs if the HttpFilterProc function of the ISAPI filter processes the SF_NOTIFY_LOG notification and changes the HTTP_FILTER_LOG structure. Because of an issue in IIS 7.0, these changed fields are not correctly reflected in the IIS log.
