I need to setup sub domains for our sharepoint Sites.
SBS 2003 Server acting as mail and file server and domain controller - DNS and DHCP Active. TWO IP Addresses Point to this Server (MX Record and OWA).
Windows Server 2003 Standard setup using wizard only as Application Server to host Sharepoint Sites. ONE IP Address Points to this server (for Sharepoint Sites).
Our Base domain address points to a single page hosted on godaddy (www.company.com
I currently have multiple sharepoint sites on the 2003 standard server. There is an A Record on Godaddy that points a subdomain (clients.company.com) to the public IP of the 2003 standard server. I then have subdomains setup on godaddy to point to a specific folder on the 2003 server using the A Record. For Example: clientA.company.com points to clients.company.com/sites/
clientA and clientB.company.com points to clients.company.com/sites/
clientB and so on.
What I want to do is remove godaddy from the equation except to point www.company.com
to the public IP address of the 2003 standard server. I can have the 2003 standard server host the single web page for the base domain instead of godaddy. Then have that server manage subdomains so that they are directed to the correct sharepoint site.
Remember that DNS is not setup on this server yet.
How do I do this and without affecting the SBS 2003 server?
I have no idea about DNS.
