We are having trouble getting Alternate Access Mapping / HTTP Redirecting to work.
Our SP url is something like this http: //SPServer /sites/intranet
we are trying to enable users to access it through http://intranet .website.com
We would like for them to be able to access the 'intranet' page from anywhere as long as they authenticate. (Sorry for the spaces in the URL's).
We have set intranet.website.com in AAM and added bindings in IIS and then added a http redirect to http:// intranet.website.com /sites/intranet and we end up with some really strange behavior. We will load the site and it will only "partially load", for example we have a page that has a Calendar, a links list, and a corporate announcements list. The calendar loads but the links and corporate announcements web part will only show the title of the webpart and no content. The ribbon the quick links lists become non functional (I can't edit them). It pretty much makes the site useless. We've read the technet articles and other forum posts and follow suggestions but it never seems to fully function. It will work on my computer and a coworkers computer, but seemingly randomly not on other machines or in other browsers like Chrome.
We are near wits end, any help is much appreciated.
I tried to include as much detail as I could, though admittedly I am a sharepoint newb. I'm happy to provide more information if you need it, I just may need a little bit of guidance :)
This worked in my 2013 environment. Create two Alternate Access Mappings. One for http://sharepointname.domain.com as the Intranet Zone and the other http://sharepointname as the Custom Zone. Now users get the same content from either http://sharepointname/subiste/page or http://sharepointname.domain.com/subiste/page
