Hi

you need to go onto your Domain controller and then admin tools - dns

find the forward lookup zone for cr.local then right click and add a new alias (cname)

create the alias of jeff.cr.local to resolve to abc.com

you shouldn't need to -dns is used to resolve the path to the  host/site - you can test this once configured by opening a CMD SHELL on a local pc and typing nslookup jeff.cr.local and it should show the resolution from dns server x.x.x.x (your dns server) as abc.com

IIS should not need reconfiguring as long as it has been abc.com (or serving that site) - if it was previously jeff.cr.local then you may need to alter the host headers for that site.
