Issue/Introduction

Description:

"cs-username" field logs the authenticated username in the IIS log. When IIS 6 is used with SiteMinder WebAgent this field is empty.

Solution:

For Web Agents that protect IIS 6.0 servers, the AppendIISServerLog parameter is provided with a default value of NO. With this configuration parameter set to NO, the Web Agent will not log the authenticated user name and the SiteMidner transaction ID to the IIS 6.0 server logs.
If the parameter is set to YES, the Web Agent passes the authenticated user name and the SiteMinder transaction ID to the HSE_APPEND_LOG_PARAMETER ServerSupportFunction.
