We are using IIS 6 along with Windows Server 2003 R2.

Even though we have set the log schedule for our web site to daily, we still
see the following headers in our log file about once an hour:

#Software: Microsoft Internet Information Services 6.0
#Version: 1.0
#Date: 2006-11-06 17:16:52
#Fields: time cs-uri-stem cs-username c-ip cs(Cookie) cs(Referer)

This never happened with IIS 4 or 5. Also the order of the log fields is
different than what is selected in the Advanced tab for the log properties.
In that tab, we see the c-ip field after the time field, and yet in the log
it is placed after the username.

Again this was working properly in IIS 4 and 5. Anyone have any solutions?
This is very annoying and causes problems with our automated web log scanning
software.
