Multiple Public Access URL for One WebApplication

  Asked By: Sherri    Date: Sep 02    Category: MOSS    Views: 1793

We have set up a MOSS 2007 server with an internet site. It has a public access
url e.g. with http://aaa.sss.com. This site collection has two subsites -
http://aaa.sss.com/TR and http://aaa.sss.com/EN." target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://aaa.sss.com/EN. We want subsite
http://aaa.sss.com/EN to be accessed via http://newaccess.sss.com. Is it
possible to do so?

That seems to be the solution for me. As access  urls could only be set  up on the
webapp level, it seems that there is no possibility to set http://aaa.sss.com/EN
to be accessed via http://newaccess.sss.com, but http://newaccess.sss.com/EN
must also be OK.

You can create a forwarding. To do so conduct the following:

Open IIS
Right click Web Sites
Select New
Select Web Site
Select Next
Type in the description for the Redirection (ex: Redirect to
http://aaa.sss.com/en" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://aaa.sss.com/en)
Select All Unassigned
Select Port 80
Enter the host header http://newaccess.sss.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://newaccess.sss.com
Select NEXT
Enter c:\inetpub\wwwroot (leave allow anonymous access  checked)
Go with READ checked (accepting the defaults)
Click Finish
Right click on the newly created Redirect to http:/aaa.sss.com/en
Select PROPERTIES
Select HOME DIRECTORY
Select A REDIRECTION TO A URL
Type in the URL to http://aaa.sss.com/en" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://aaa.sss.com/en
Check the box THE EXACT URL ENTERED ABOVE
Select APPLY
Select OK.

Try to access http://newaccess.sss.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://newaccess.sss.com and it should redirect to
http://aaa.sss.com/en" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://aaa.sss.com/en.

You can setup an alternate access  Mapping to map aaa.sss.com to
newaccess.sss.com, but you won't be able to map a subsite address directly to a
root URL. The closest you can come would be that http://aaa.sss.com/EN would be
mapped to http://newaccess.sss.com/EN" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://newaccess.sss.com/EN, but not to http://newaccess.sss.com." target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://newaccess.sss.com. The
only way I know of to achieve a vanity URL like http://newaccess.sss.com is to
create an IIS website at that address and use a redirect page to send the user
to the site at http://aaa.sss.com/en. You can't use AAMs to map subsites to root
URLs.

Redirecting the user is not the preferred approach, address bar should not be
changed. But I got the point thanks a lot.
