SharePoint MOSS Alternate Access Mappings – Education Career Blog

In SharePoint MOSS I have a site at http://ourintranet/ I’ve now added a new entry to the Alternate Access Mapping for the domain pointing at this site. When I now type this in I get redirected to http://ourintranet/ and the visible url changes.

Is there a way to have this work where by the domain remains as

All the best


Yes, you need to extend the Web Application @ http://ourintranet and specify as a host header. This will create a new IIS Web site responding to the specified host header. Extending a Web Application also requires you to select the zone for which the extension should be applied.


What zone did you add it as? If you put it in the extranet zone it should work?
