Hi All,

I've deployed Sharepoint 2010 already and have created new site on port 80, however when i type http://machinename it works but not with http://machinename.domain.com ?

is there anything faulty in the configuration ?

any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

this could be handled  by adding a mapping in your hosts file located at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc.

however, this would need to be added at each client machine.

A better way would be to add a lookup zone in DNS server.

you can check the alternate access mappings in sharepoint 2010 central administration.. but it is mostlty because of the fact that the remote computer is not able to resolve the FQDN of your sharepoint server

alternate access mapping is basically to define how and through which URL your sharepoint site will be accessed in different zones.

typcially when you want to make your site available for internet or intranet environment and dont want the user to actually request the site using machine name you allow the settings to be handled through the aam.

for e.g. http://mycompany.intranet.com
http://mycompany.com

for all these cases you need to add an entry into Forward lookup zone and then replicate the settings in AAM

ok so in thiscase AAM + DNS changes, because I've done Host Header changes and AAM it is not going anywhere :-|
