Company I work for is going through name change. As such, some of their web-based applications need new addresses added, so sites are accessible via its previous and new URL.
Here is an example:
Our customers can currently access our web-ordering portal via URL orders.xxxx.com.au (xxxx being the old company name). New URL that would toint to the same site would be orders.yyyy.com.au (yyyy being the new company name).
I have created new forward lookup zone yyy.com.au and added New Host orders.yyyy.com.au with an IP addresses pointing to the servers which host our ordering web portal. I have also added a new addess to correct subnet in Reverse Lookup Zone. Literarly, I have copied the same settings as for orders.xxxx.com.au address.
The trouble is that our servers (there are two load-balancing servers) also host our external website www.xxxx.com.au
, so when we enter orders.yyyy.com.au, we are redirected to our company's webpage, www.xxxx.com.au
. It is the same for our other web-based apps, such as catalogue.yyyy.com.au - they all redirect to our company's homepage.
As I am not much of a Server Guy, I hope someone will collect easy points as solution is, I am sure, starting me in the eye.
