SharePoint 2007 - alternate access mapping RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've got a site http://example123 and I want it to be accessed as http://eg. Meaning whenever anybody tries to type http://eg , it should take them to http://example123.

    I did make entries in alternate access mapping but this still doesn't work. Am I missing out on something?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    Shipra Sharma

  • This is how it will work for you:

    1. Central Admin > Alternate Access mapping > Set default URL as http://example123. > Make sure http://eg is not present anywhere. if does, remove it >

    2. Central Admin > Alternate Access mapping > add internal URL > type http://eg > select default

    Update both in binding perform iisreset

    you are good to go :)

  • Hi Shipra,

    1. You also need to open IIS Manager and for the site http://example123 edit the bindings and add EH on port 80.
    2. Also, open DNS Manager and add an A Record for EG with the same IP Address as you are using for Example123.
    3. If you are attempting to browse to EG from the same Server where you have SharePoint installed you will also need to disable loopback checking

  • Hi, You need to do the following:

    1. Select ‘Add Internal URLs’

    2. Change the ‘Alternate Access Mapping Collection’ to the relevant web app (http://example123) (SharePoint Central Admin)

    3. Enter the desired internal URL (http://eg) (SharePoint Central Admin)

    4. Add a binding for http://eg in the http://example123 website (IIS – on your SharePoint web server)

    Providing you have a DNS entry for ‘eg’ pointing at your web server, anyone accessing http://eg will be returned http://example123 in their browser address bar.

    Good guide on AAMs here (relevant for MOSS also):

    Hope this helps

  • that's not what AAM's are about... AAM's are about the same site being accessible with different URLs.

    What you want is an IIS redirect. Very different. Not handled/provided by SharePoint.
