-netlog only works if you use ARMA2's Patch 1.02 Updated (Build 58134) executable and run it with the -server switch.
The drawback of using the ArmA2.exe as a dedicated server however is that if you are using the 505 install it will require the DVD to be inserted into the server's drive on launch.
At the moment the 1.02b dedicated server exe does not support the -netlog command.
It is created in the ArmA2 root directory.
You should get something like the following written to it on successful launch

i had asked Jman via PM on KH forums and was about to post the same reply.
@<hidden> - Is there any performace hit in using the regular exe with the -server switch over the beta dedicated server exe?
my thoughts are that in these early days it is more usefull to have the records of player names ID's IP's etc etc to start collecting information about players behaviour for use in banning, IP banning and generally keeping an eye on whats going on in the servers.
however as i am trying to sell servers i also don't want a masive performance drop to hinder the interest of any prospective clients.

There is no performance hit that I am aware of.
i rented a server so is it then a different story or the same to get the netlog to work?

same story, get in touch with your hosts and ask them to use the regular game exe with the -server switch instead of the dediserver exe
should take em 2 minutes to alter the startup line from:
D:\servers\ArmA2\ArmA2Server.exe -port=2303 -server=server -config=server.cfg -cfg=arma2.cfg -netlog
D:\servers\ArmA2\arma2.exe -server -port=2303 -server=server -config=server.cfg -cfg=arma2.cfg -netlog
obviously you need to alter the directory and hames of various files but the big difference is
ArmA2Server.exe changes to arma2.exe -server

if you want the config files in the ArmA2 root dir it should be:
D:\servers\ArmA2\arma2.exe -server -port=2303 -config=server.cfg -cfg=arma2.cfg -netlog
-server=server is not a valid switch, -name is but you only need that if you are specifying a subdir structure in the launch line
the only thing i see as a start up is this line -config=server.cfg -netlog -ip=188.8.131.52 -port=2302 -profile=D:\localuser\G7300 -rankings=ranks
I ask the company where i rent it but they say it cant be done because they need a key for every server.
So i think i need to wait with the -netlog.
