  • Windows 2K3 IIS Redirect

    Hi there,

    I have a problem regarding IIS in my environment. Below is a brief info.

    I have four servers and about 100 client PCs in my environment:-
    1. Server name: W2K3 | MYDC (qcs.local) | AD (192.167.1.2)
    2. Server name: W2K3 | MYPrintServer | Print Server (192.167.1.3)
    3. Server name: W2K3 | MYIIS | IIS (192.167.1.4)
    4. Server name: W2K3 | MYFileServer | File & Application Server (192.167.1.5)


    I have local intranet configured in MYIIS server. Yes, when i typed localhost on IE's address bar in MYIIS server, it goes into the intranet, but when i typed intranet in my client PCs, i got error browsing; i had to type the name of the IIS server to visit the intranet.

    Could somebody here teach me now to configure in this environment so that when my users type http://intranet in IE on client PCs, the DC can help to divert the traffic to MYIIS.

    Please let me know if you need further information. Thank you very much and i look forward to hear from you guys soon.

      Thanks for the info...

      I added the CNAME in my domain under Forward Lookup Zones, and it work right away. Do i also need to create a CNAME in Reverse Lookup Zones? What is the function(s) of these two zones?

        There's no such thing as a CNAME reverse lookup zone record. The reason is that the CNAME record in the forward lookup zone is an "alias" for an A record in the forward lookup zone and the A record has a PTR record in the reverse lookup zone.

        In a nutshell:

        forward lookup zones resolve names to ip addresses

        reverse lookup zones resolve ip addresses to names
