I need to configure the SharePoint intranet URL to show ‘Domain’. Currently when I type that into my browser, it brings up the site, but switches to show ‘snb-sharepoint’. It will also show up as ‘Domaintwo’.
Alternative access mappings are (everything is in http://):

-snb-sharepoint (default zone), public URL for zone is snb-sharepoint

-Domain (default zone), public URL for zone is snb-sharepoint

-Domaintwo (intranet zone), public URL for zone is Domaintwo

In IIS, I have one binding on port 80 with no host header ( * ) that will be a catch all site for that port.

On the DNS manager I have CNAMES for the URLs above:

  1. CNAME = Domain FQDN = Domain.snb.companynb.com FQDN for target host = snb-sharepoint.snb.companynb.com

  2. CNAME = Domaintwo FQDN = Domaintwo.snb.companynb.com FQDN for target host = snb-sharepoint.snb.companynb.com

I also have some networks drives that are mapped to SharePoint libraries. Alternative access mappings changes made these network drives inaccessible Ex: \Domain\docs1\ \Domain\docs2\

What do I need to configure in order for my SharePoint intranet URL to show ‘Domain’ and not take down my network drives that are mapped to SharePoint?

  • you want to browse the site using domain url not snb-sharepoint? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Sep 28 '16 at 19:16
  • 'domain' is just an example of an intranet URL. I didn;t want to give out my actual domain. It could be anything. Ex. snb.intranet – Anthony P Sep 28 '16 at 21:51
  • Edit the public URL on the AAM page and enter the domains there. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Sep 28 '16 at 22:32

I got the issue resolved by configuring "Domain" to a public URL instead of an internal URL.

Afterwards, when I type it in my browser it sticks rather than changing to snb-sharepoint. Hope this helps others.
