Cannot access MOSS 2007 site by domain name

  Asked By: Ashu    Date: Jan 07    Category: MOSS    Views: 1637

I just setup a standalone MOSS 2007 server, but I've ran into a few
problems. I'm sure they would be easy to resolve by most of you, but I'm
brand new to MOSS. First, let me start by detailing my setup:

- Clean standalone server install. (everything is on the same machine)

- No AD environment. Just local accounts.

- Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2

I can navigate to the default site just fine using the netbios name of the
server, but not the domain name, which DNS records point to this machine. I
should add that DNS resolution works fine. Before the MOSS installation, I
had a site on this server that worked beautifully. Now, I want to replace it
with a MOSS portal.

When I attempt to nav to the site using the domain name, I get prompted for
my login credentials, but no credentials pass the challenge. If I use the
machine name instead, the credentials work just fine. I'm sure this is an
easy fix, but have no idea where to start.

Try setting up an Alternate Access Mapping for the FQDN of the server.

Go to Central admin and add an Alternate Access maping for the FQDN name
of the server in addition to the netbios name, which is probably the
address in the default zone mapping.
