Standard forwarding in Plesk cannot be applied to IIS settings

Symptoms

Plesk 11.5 for Windows. Standard forwarding does not apply to IIS settings. The destination addres configured in Plesk is http://newdomain.tld/path/to/redirect/ but if I go to IIS Manager -> domain.tld -> HTTP Rediect the old domain name is still persists:

I tried to reconfigure it with

 "%plesk_cli%repair.exe" --reconfigure-web-site -web-site-name domain.tld

and it did not help.

Cause

  1. Custom config file web.conf is located in the home directory ( C:\\Inetpub\\vhosts\\forwarding ) with the content:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

  2. Custom redirect is configured on the server lever. Open IIS Manager and go to "COMPUTER_NAME" -> HTTP Redirect

Resolution

Rename the file C:\\Inetpub\\vhosts\\forwarding\\web.config to C:\\Inetpub\\vhosts\\forwarding\\web_renamed.config and reapply settings in Plesk Panel.
