We have an existing web application and site collection which serves as our main portal.
I need to create an additional web application on the same server, and a site collection on it. This will have entirely different content and will be used only by a specific group of users (board members). These users should not have access to our main portal.
http://portal (portal.ourdomain.com on port 80)
We'd like, in addition to that:
We already have the new DNS entry pointing to the SharePoint server.
- Should I create the board application on port 81?
- Should I provide a Host Header string?
- If so, would that be 'board.ourdomain.com' or 'http://boardportal'?
- Do I need to mess with alternate access mappings?
