Hi I have SharePoint portal in Azure, that I try to connect to my custom domain address.

I created and assigned static VIP to machine. Extended my Sharepoint application to internet zone, example mysite.cloudapp.net, set up it to use FBA authentication. Azure gives public name to machine so I accessed my site from internet via this address(by example "http://MySP.cloudapp.net"). All works.

Now I bought domain, created CNAME and A records few days ago, and added this address to Alternate Access Mappings in my SharePoint. By example it will be "http://MySP.com"

So alternate access mappings now are like this:

enter image description here

It works. But now if I type http://MySP.com, it changes in my browser to http://MySP.cloudapp.net. I don't want this, I want user to see only http://MySP.com(or http://www.MySP.com) header.

So I made backup and decided to delete http://MySP.cloudapp.net from AAM. After this if I type http://MySP.com I see in fiddler that there begins a loop and site does not open. I added it back but anyway got this loop. So now I restored and don't know - how to set up http://MySP.com address for this Azure SharePoint portal correctly?

I read this article, but it does not explain how to create two external addresses with no redirects http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sharepoint_strategery/archive/2013/05/27/alternate-access-mappings-explained.aspx

upd.: in addition I can say that I also added http://www.mysite.com in Alternate Access Mappings, and it also changes in browser url field to http://mysite.cloudapp.net

What can I do with this..

Resolved. Recreated web app and retuned FBA settings in web.config: "Update a web application URL and IIS bindings for SharePoint 2013"


Not the way that I would call a "silver bullet", but this helped.
