Cname not working when pointing to mydomain/exchange
Posted on 2006-04-24
I have Windows 2003 SBS standard.
Externally I have a domain wih A, MX and Cname records working perfectly as follows:
(A) mydomain.com -> ip address
(A) www -> ip address
(MX) mydomain.com -> mydomain.com
(cname) outlook.mydomain.com -> mydomain.com/exchange
Everything works perfect here.
Internally I have the same setup and everything except for the CNAME works.
If I type http://mydomain.com/exchange in my browser (fron the LAN) it works just fine.
If I change the CNAME to point outlook.mydomain.com -> mydomain.com it works fine too; but if I add /exchange at the end it won't work, what's wrong? I would appreciate your help as I am not too familiar with the DNS setup.
