FIX: Requests for URLs are not traced after you enable the UseUrlFilter flag in IIS 7.0 or in IIS 7.5

Applies to: Internet Information Services 7.5

Symptoms


Consider the following scenario:
  • You enable the UseUrlFilter flag to trace requests for some URLs in Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 or in IIS 7.5.  
  • You specify the URLs in the ApplicationHost.config file.     

In this scenario, the requests for these URLs are not traced. 

For example, the requests for the "/iisstart.htm" URL are not traced when you specify this URL of a default website in the ApplicationHost.config file by using the following text:
<location path="Default Web Site">
    <system.webServer>
        <security>
            <authentication>
                <anonymousAuthentication enabled="true" />
            </authentication>
        </security>
        <httpTracing>
            <traceUrls>
                <add value="/iisstart.htm" />
            </traceUrls>
        </httpTracing>
    </system.webServer>
</location>
