Configuring DNS to expand URL
Posted on 2007-11-19
I am the administration for a windows 2003 Active directory with AD Integrated DNS. I have a website that my customers hit quite often. Unfortunately the URL is less than intuitive. Its a third party app whose URL paths cannot be changed. In addition I have an external DNS provider that will require access to this page as well. I can make changes to DNS. I have attempted to use CNAME's without success.
I would like for SS8A.acme.com to be typed by a customer or user and that get expanded/redirected to SS8a.acme.com/public/data/cases/status.
The IP address of the app machine is the same for both URL's.
The reason why bookmarks won't work is some of our customer's have policies that prevent bookmark (strange I know)..
