Problems in Accessing SharePoint Sites. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having issues with accessing my sharepoint site.
    we have a domain lets say sharepoint.domain.com
    this works 100% for logging into the main sharepoint site. I created a site /sites/management
    which 3 people have access to. When logging into the management website from the HOST machine it works 100% however when I try to login to the site via sharepoint.domain.com/sites/management I am unsuccessful in logging in as any of these 3 users.
    Is there any configuration I need to do in order to allow these users to log in via sharepoint.domain.com/sites/management?

  • Also - when I get to the login screen and a user logs in correctly I get 404, but when a user logs in unsucessfully it says Error: Access Denied (as expected)

  • This forum is accessibility issues.

    As defined by Microsoft "Accessibility" means making it possible for people with sight; hand coordination etc. problems (= the "physically challenged") to be able to use web sites.

    Your question is about Accessing sites. It is not the same thing.

    I'm moving this to Setup/Admin.

    Next time look at all the other posts in the forum before you post. They (and the sticky post) are all about Accessibility as defined above.

  • HI,


    YES, you need to do some configuration here.If you are accessing site through some name or server public IP. You need to set up the Host Header, Alternate Access mapping and DNS entry.
