Details of my environment:
I have a test setup which is not intended to be used by any clients outside of the test network.
Essentially I have 3 machines:
Server 1: Windows Server 2008 R2; Domain controller and DNS server; domain FQDN = dc1.domain.com
Server 2: WIndows Server 2008 R2; SharePoint 2010; FQDN = sp1.domain.com
Client 1: WIndows 7; Test Client (IE); FQDN = clt1.domain.com
My goal is to be able to browse the SharePoint site from the Test client via http://domain
I am able to browse the site if I use the SharePoint server machine name: http://sp1
I'm guessing this is as simple as creating some sort of record in DNS, I'm just not sure what kind of record to create. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
