Changing Company Web Default Address http://companyweb/default.aspx

I would like to change the default Company Web address in SBS. I added an entry to DNS but it's not working.

Currently it is http://companyweb/default.aspx

I would like to change it to something like internal.domain.com

Is this able to be done on SBS with a re-direct or something?

No, admins don't get a different Welcome page, they get a different RWW page though.

Are you wanting to do this for EXTERNAL access or INTERNAL access?  Because there are different issues at hand here for that.

inside...

i just want a user to be able to type in something thats more related to our company name instead of the generic http://companyweb

I added an A record to dns and it goes to the initial page where you can use rww or 'go to your company's internal website' etc.

how can i make it go straight to companyweb?

You need to add another CNAME record to SBS and then put that name in as an additional host header on the companyweb site in IIS Manager.

Do not remove the companyweb names though because if you do, you'll break things.

Also, just FYI, RWW is not accessible from the default Welcome Page... it's only available from http://<servername or External FQDN/IP>/remote

See http://sbsurl.com/rww for more info on that.

i'm in iis, right clicked 'default web site' went to the home directory and said to use "A redirection to a URL" and i put in http://companyweb/default.aspx but that didnt work either.... i found that i had to check off the three boxes that say exact url, and permanent redirection....and now its working.

Thanks!!

gotcha....it worked...however...im not able to use OWA anymore. it redirects me to companyweb which can only be used from the inside and when outside redirects to a page to purchase the companyweb.com url....
