Ok, he we go. I am currently migrating our web server. This is moving from W2k3 std sp2 to W2k3 std x64 sp2 box. All patches, and x64 versions of the software have been installed.
On my old box, I have a .net application, which is situated in a virtual directory under the Default Web Site. So to access, I just type in http://oldbox/nhhs
and the application appears fine and runs. It runs under Integrated Windows Authentication.
On my new box, I have or thought I had duplicated everything. Indeed I have some other sites being set up that I can browse to fine frrom within IIS. However, on the newbox, when I type http://newbox/nhhs
, I get Page Not Found with Error 404, and the same if I manually specify the default start page, in my case default.aspx. If I use http://localhost/nhhs
, I get Page cannot be Found with a 400 Bad Request error.
If I go to a client and enter the same http://newbox/nhhs
, I still get the 404 error.
On the new server again, if I type in the browser, http://localhost
, then I get 400 bad request. However, if I type http://newbox
I get the correct reply of Under Construction as I have left the default iisstart.htm file in place.
So where or what am I doing wrong? All permissions, structures etc etc etc seem to mirror the oldbox, except where they need to be changed, such as the IP address etc.
