SM Portal change FQDN RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a running SM Portal and accessible at https://con-scsm1.hv.com:444/SMPortal (example). As this way expose the server name to user, can i rename the FQDN of the portal ?

    Say for example i want it to be name more generic such as https://servicedesk.hv.com:444/SMPortal.

    Thank you.

  • Hi Aries,

    You can configure an alternate access mapping in SharePoint Central Administration

    Have you already done the preparation in DNS Manager to point to your new url?

  • Hi Dennis,

    I am looking at the blog now.

    Yes, I have done with the DNS but I done it with creating A Record instead of CNAME as mention in the blog. Does this matter ?

    Thank you.

  • Hi Dennis,

    I have tested the steps and it works. One thing i notice that it is sort of a redirection of the SMPortal.

    What i have is that as i typed https://servicedesk.hv.com:4444/smportal , it redirect me back to https://con-scsm1.hv.com:444/smportal and this show in the browser.

    Is there a way that I don't show the server FQDN in the browser ?

    Thank you.

  • Hi Dennis,

    I found it, I have renamed the Public URL from http://con-scsm1 to http://servicedesk and everything works out as expected.

    Thanks so much of the guidance.
