Alternate Access Mapping and DNS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I need some guidance here, please.

    After I configure the Alternate Access Mapping options of a Web App, do I need to create an entry in the DNS with the new URL?

    For example, If I change the "Intranet" URL do I need to create a new pointer to the DNS

    Thanks in advanced

  • Hi,

    DNS and AAM's both need to add up, along with the host header names within IIS.

    When you create a web application SharePoint will manage the host header name within IIS and the AAM - however your need your AD guys to add the correct DNS entry into the domain.

  • Your browser need to find the server. That can either be done using a host file entry or DNS. AAM is on the SharePoint server only. It does not influence the name resolution of the browser machine.
