Extranet Tool

  Asked By: Jagdish    Date: Oct 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1431

I used the extranet tool to get my 3 portal sites to be assessable via
extranet. I just created another portal site. Does anybody know what I
need to do in order to get this new portal site to be via extranet? I
tried running the extranet tool again, but when I put in the Web Site
Host Name (FQDN), it tells me that it's already in use (which is true).
How do I handle this new portal site?

<http://myserver.domain.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://myserver.domain.com> " "workspace2, workspace3"

This will create a virtual directory for workspace2 and workspace3 in
the virtual web  server "http://myserver.domain.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://myserver.domain.com
<http://myserver.domain.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://myserver.domain.com/> "

This script assume that Sharepoint is installed on the "Default Web
Site" and that workspace2 and workspace3 are existing workspace on the
Default Web Site. FYI, to build the script I used the extranet  tool as a
