I am migrating from sbs2003 to sbs 2008.
AD, DNS, EXCHANGE and IIS is migrated and is functioning with no issues.
Why my company decided to muck with domains and webhosting during a sbs migration is one of life's most endearing msyteries, but I have to deal with it.
I've purchased a new domain name that is a secondary, seperate and distinct domain name from my AD.
I'd like sbs 2008 to host it.
The add new ip address wizard does not work for me because I did not purchase from the MS list of approved registrars.
I've searched EE and came close with this snippet from this ID: 21992046;
(same as parent folder) must be a Host(A) record with the IP Address if you want people to be able to get to mywebsite.com.
I can't figure out how to create a host(a) record with the ip address.
works great, points to new domain name and iis is hosting it great.
mywebsite.com points to my default site which is not good.
I am looking to have mywebsite.com point to the same location as www.mywebsite.com
This is what I have in sbs2008 server manager DNS for my new zone; mywebsite.com.
(same as parent folder) SOA servername.domain.local
(same as parent folder) NS sbs2003 servername.domain.local
(same as parent folder) NS sbs2008 servername.domain.local
webserver host(a) 10.0.0.50
www alias(cname) webserver.mywebsite.com
Thank-you for your insight.
