Can I use DNAME and what is the  proper syntax to force all requests for http://anyserver.my-company.com to be redirected to http://anyserver.mycompany.com

I am using BIND on RHES 3


Thanks

You can use page redirector.

Here is how:
1. Create a default page on http://anyserver.my-company.com. (Say default.html)
2. Now copy this code inside it.
   <HTML>
   <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh"  CONTENT="1; URL= http://anyserver.mycompany.com">
   </HTML>

This will redirect every request to be redirected.

Actually that won't work for me.    For starters I want to redirect everything, not just http like I previously indicated.  Scecondly, my http servers that I am concerned about are running domino.   The Default page is a single sign on database and there is no place that I can think of that I can do this on.

Additionally. I think from your method I would need to do this on every server.  I would like it to be universal.

Then create a Alias record in your DNS.

Create a alias record with somename and assign it IP address of other web server.

Then, if somebody writes somename.yourdomain.com then he would actually connects to Web server whose IP address you have specified.

But then I a have to manage this for all servers in the domain.  I would like to use something like DNAME to do it for any server in the domain.

The problem is I do not know the sytax for using DNAME ... it seems to be a bit obscure.

I guess DNAME won't rewrite the request for me .. I am going to have to figure out how to do it based on domino web server.   I will close this question and award points since the suggestion given would work if I was running apache front end on all http servers.  

Thanks
