So this is the situation,

  • I have a SharePoint farm with multiple servers.
  • I have multiple web applications.
  • I have two WFE servers.
  • The incoming traffic is load balanced using an ISA server ( Reverse Proxy).
  • Incoming traffic is secured using SSL (HTTPS, this is working fine, certificates are installed and the sites are accesible using the HTTPS adress.)

I have read a lot about AAM and I can still not figure out what the correct settings for my farm should be! Everything is working but I doubt that the settings are correct.

I have a site on port 80 which can be connected to by using http://WFE1 and http://WFE2. What I want however is that users can connect to it using SSL, so there is a rule in the ISA server that incoming requests on https://portal.company.com are routed to one of the two servers.

In AAM I now have the AAM set to https://portal.company.com for both internal and public url on the default zone. I am now able to connect to the site using https, but my question is if this setup is correct or not?

That's correct! You just need the one AAM for your HTTPS address, and you'll need IIS configured on both servers for SSL binding.

  • Thanks, that gives me some more confidence in the set-up.
