I am currently trying to configure a new SP2019 on prem server to host multiple Web Applications that all use Hostname Site collections. These web applications are assigned virtual IPs and share the same port (443). I can ping the IPs, however when going to a site collection via the browser it always (and quickly) results in a 404.
I feel like this is an IIS issue, however bindings appear correctly to me and both IIS and ULS logs aren't saying anything that stands out to me. Is there a configuration step I am missing? Has anyone experienced or has has insight into this situation?
- Create Web Application
$WebAppName = "Collaboration" $HostHeader = "Collaboration.company.com" $WebAppURL = "https://"+$HostHeader $WebAppPort = 443 $ContentDBName = "SP19_Collaboration_Content" $AppPoolName = "Collaboration AppPool" $AppPoolAccount = "company\account" $AuthProvider = New-SPAuthenticationProvider -UseWindowsIntegratedAuthentication -DisableKerberos New-SPWebApplication -name $WebAppName -port $WebAppPort -hostheader $HostHeader -URL $WebAppURL -ApplicationPool $AppPoolName -ApplicationPoolAccount (Get-SPManagedAccount $AppPoolAccount) -AuthenticationMethod NTLM -AuthenticationProvider $AuthProvider -DatabaseName $ContentDBName -SecureSocketsLayer
- Create root-site collection
Done via Central Admin
- Configure WebBindings
Import-Module WebAdministration #IPAddress is virtual IP New-WebBinding -name "Collaboration" -IPAddress "x.x.x.90" -HostHeader '' -port 443 -Protocol "https" (Get-WebBinding -Name "Collaboration" -Port 443 -Protocol "https").AddSslCertificate("cert thumbprint","my") Get-WebBinding -Name "Collaboration" -HostHeader "Collaboration.company.com" | Remove-WebBinding
- create test site collection
New-SPSite “https://collabtest.company.com” -HostHeaderWebApplication (Get-SPWebApplication ‘Collaboration') -Name “Demo collaboration site” -Description “Demo site” -OwnerAlias “company\me” –SecondaryOwnerAlias “company\notme” -Template “SITEPAGEPUBLISHING#0”
- create A record in DNS
name = collabtest
fqdn = collabtest.company.com
IP Address = x.x.x.90
After the above steps I am able to ping, and get a reply so traffic must be reaching the SP server, it just cant find the web application?
Before I took over setup, our systems team did create a web app with hostname site collections but it was bound to all IPs on port 443. Is it possible this earlier web app is causing problems?
