Portal and wss on the same computer

  Asked By: Beth    Date: Apr 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2574

We have a SharePoint Portal server with URL: http://portal.domain/
running on one of our servers and now we have tried to create a WSS
website on another virtual server with a completely different URL but
still on the same computer.
Cannot get it to work. As far as I understand this should be possible,
shouldn´t it. Does anyone have a tip?

Install service pack 2... Pre-sp2 you couldn't use host headers. That tripped a
lot of people up.

Not so! I've had 4 portals on the same machine separated by host
headers for roughly a year, well before SP2 was released. They all
run on port 80--it's just host headers that differentiate the portals.

The bigger question is if there is a DNS pointer for the WSS site name
to the correct machine.

Verify you have DNS correct, try pinging. Your host header then needs to match identical. If you want host headers over SSL, then you will need Win2k3 R2.
