Hi,
One of my friends has two domain names and all configured to MS-SBS 2008. But he wants to add one more remote.domain2.com to point to the server just like remote.domain1.com

How can I do this for hem?

Thank you in advance,

In your external DNS for domain2.com create an A record for remote and point it to the external IP address (same as remote.domain1.com)

if you want to be able to accept email for domain2.com then you will also need to configure an MX record and an accepted domain in Exchange Management Console under Organisation configuration.

It depends what you are trying to do?

But there is no A record for external IP for domain1. There is only CNAME because he uses only DynDNS.

The cname will be referencing an A record somewhere.

No CNAME is referring to moba.dyndns.tv (for example) of course there is an IP address but it changes a lot and that's way the DynDNS is being used.

Then for the second domain create the same cname record this will do the same job.

However a better solution would be to upgrade to a business class DSZl solution with a fixed IP address then these issues will go away.

It is very costly to have real IP address. Also I tried to do what you said to create CNAME in the domain2 but I faced the following:
1- when I type in IE remote.domain2.com it doesn't redirct me to HTTPS.
2- when I type Https I get a message saying that access denied or something like that.

What is the purpose of doing this?
The remote website is a share point site and whilst you can add additional bindings to this i wouldn't recommend it in a SBS environment.

What you are attempting to do will only cause problems down the line.  SBS is not designed to work the way you are trying to make it work.

If you are running a business then a fixed IP is a must with business class DSL trying to get around it with fixes is just a waste of time and resources.
