Sharepoint Alias RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a Sharepoint URL (or site)



    that instead of asking everyone to type the whole URL including the port number we'd like to remap to another URL which is much easier like
    http://intranet.company.com  (or something similar)

    - so when the user type this - this will remap them to the actual URL
    ( http://sharepoint:3033/SitePages/Home.aspx )

    How can we do that?

  • Hello


    I think , you can achieved this with alternate access mapping feature.

    see the video:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/video/ff679917

  • I tried to do it as in the first part of the video

    When I go to Alternate Access Mappings, I find we have a site called http://sharepoint:3033 - assigned to the default zone.

    I have clicked on 'Edit Public URLs' and added a shortcut url like:

    http://mysite2.com and assigned to the Intranet zone.

    However, when I type that in IE (on the server), it doesnt seem to work.

    Any thoughts?

  • Is their a requirement for their to be a redirect at the firewall level so that the request doesnt get password onto the internet and should instead be diverted to the sharepoint server .... is this the cause why what I just did doesnt work??

  • You can achieve this by a combination of DNS, host headers in IIS and Alternate Access mappings.

    You can extend the website using central administration to a different ( say port 80) and specify the host header (eg intranet.company.com) which would add the alternate access mapping in SharePoint. The DNS entry ( same as the site ie intranet.company.com) then needs to be set in DNS to point to your SharePoint server or load balancer.

    Hope this makes sense.
