About me: Our web admin just quit his job and my boss ask me (software developer who only know the basic concept of web server) to administrative 2 web servers. Both server has same settings and webpages because of server load balance (?).

OS : Windows 2003 IIS : 6.0

My problem: Before last week, we use this url "index.sally.home.gettherabbit.com" for our homepage. When users type "index.sally.home.gettherabbit.com" in their browsers, it will takes the users to "https://index.sally.home.gettherabbit.com" and dont give cert error. My boss ask our network guy to create a new domain "sally.gettherabbit.com". The problem : When some users type "sally.gettherabbit.com" , the browser bring them to "https://sally.gettherabbit.com" and prompt user login before continuing to the homepage (https://index.sally.home.gettherabbit.com). When the same users type "https://index.sally.home.gettherabbit.com", it give cert error and a warning to continue to the page. After the users proceed, the browsers still take them to "https://index.sally.home.gettherabbit.com" with cert error in the url bar.

While some users dont have any problem when type "sally.gettherabbit.com", it redirect to the right url "https://index.sally.home.gettherabbit.com".

Is this my fault? iis server fault? or the network guy who create the new domain?

In Command Prompt: Ping sally.gettherabbit.com (the message shows it points to 10.10.10.100) - i think this load balance server.

Web Server 1 10.10.10.33 Web Server 2 10.10.10.22

Thanks

It depends on what you want here.  Do you want sally.gettherabbit.com to be a seperate page that does not require SSL?  Or do you want it to support SSL?  Do you want it to redirect to index.sally.gettherabbit.com?  Or should it be it's own page?

If you just want it to redirect users to https://indexsally.gettherabbit.com - Go to the Home Directory tab of the site properties and select "re-direct to a URL," and enter that url there.

extra info :
my boss want "sally.gettherabbit.com" redirected to  "https://index.sally.gettherabbit.com/homepage" .

When i type ping "sally.gettherabbit.com " in command prompt, the reply is "Pinging index.sally.gettherabbit.com [10.10.10.100]" . Is this mean "sally.gettherabbit.com " pointing to the right url [10.10.10.100]?

In my theory, browsers should not ask user login if the user type  "sally.gettherabbit.com " 

The route : "sally.gettherabbit.com" ------> "http://index.sally.gettherabbit.com" --> "https://index.sally.gettherabbit.com/homepage

default.aspx file in web root folder redirect to "https://index.sally.gettherabbit.com"


my problem is Why the browser requires user login for "sally.gettherabbit.com " , but no problem for  "http://index.sally.gettherabbit.com"

yes, i change the home directory's URL redirect to "https://index.sally.gettherabbit.com/homepage" . As result:


sally.gettherabbit.com  ---> still requires user login
https://index.sally.gettherabbit.com/homepage  ---> website can not be acccess

On the Directory Security tab, what do you have under Authentication and Access control for http://sally.gettherabbit.com?

Make sure you have checked "enable anonymous access" and that the account is set to IUSR_machinename

Also make sure that that user has NTFS access to the webroot for that site.

"On the Directory Security tab, what do you have under Authentication and Access control for http://sally.gettherabbit.com?"
Enable anonymous Access - checked
Authenticated Access - Integrated Windows Authentication


i just found out this is an intranet environment. the domain only work in intranet network.

i added http://sally.gettherabbit.com in IE trusted intranet sites list, now the browser (ie,chrome) dont require user login when type http://sally.gettherabbit.com (redirected to "https://index.sally.gettherabbit.com/homepage"). For firefox , i change the network:automatic-logon settings.

Now the problem is how i do this in IIS server? to change the browser setting in 200 local PC is not really effective.
