You can also create FRT rules by using command line
utilities such as Appcmd, Windows PowerShell, and Windows Management
Instrumentation (WMI). The Appcmd syntax is as follows.
To delete an FRT rule, you can use the following Appcmd syntax.
%systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\AppCmd configure trace "URL" /enable [/path:path]
[/statuscodes:code][/timeTaken:timeSpan] [/areas:areas] [/verbosity:detailLevel]
Don’t forget that for
the rules to take effect, the Web site must have FRT enabled. You can do
this in IIS Manager as described earlier in this chapter, or use Appcmd
as follows, where WebSiteName is the name of the Web site. Similarly, use /disablesite to disable FRT for a Web site.
%systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\AppCmd configure trace "URL" /disable [/path:path]
%systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\AppCmd configure trace "WebSiteName" /enablesite
The parameters to these commands are explained in Table 1.
