Our Windows Server 2003 domain controller is also our primary DNS server. We have a backup DNS server, but it is external to our network. I only have access to our internal one.
We also have a Sharepoint site whose address is http://test:16699
. How can I create an alias for the address of the site using the primary DNS server? Under DNS service, I have drilled down to our domain, _msdcs.domain.com, right-clicked and chosen New Host. But there is no way to put in the port number.
Recreating the Sharepoint site so there would be no port hasn't worked. I screwed up the default.master a while ago and every recreation doesn't fix it. Also, every reinstallation of Sharepoint 07 doesn't work either. I really really screwed that one up. But the test:16699 site works fine. The only way to get back the http://test
with no port number is to reload the OS. Suffice to say, don't really want to do that.
