IIS Web site setup on Windows 2008 server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Team,

     

    I have installed IIS on Windows 2008 server and then have configured one more virtual directory called XYZ and it is working fine when I access the Website Url with hostname [abc].

    Example : - http://abc.domain.com/xyz  -Working fine.

    But now we want this Website URL should be changed to  http://abc.rhu.com\xyz but it is not working. basically we have made same hostname entry in differnent DNS Domain ZONE called rhu.com. so we want to work with different URL not default.

    Do you know how to change this in IIS Windows 2008 ? so that new URL should work.

  • Hello,

    I have not understood the problem but for DNS, you can:

    • Create a primary zone named abc.rhu.com
    • Create an empty A record for the Web server

  • If you are using host headers on your websites, then add this additional host header to the site properties.  As Mr X suggested, it would be best if you post this question in Microsoft's Official forum for IIS.
