1 WFE to 1 SQL BE. DNS has been configured to resolve the host name of the SPP server to a friendly name; however, resolution still seems to take some time and there are numerous Event IDs 8214 referenceing both the server name and the friendly name:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Windows SharePoint Services 3
Event Category: Topology
Event ID: 8214
Time: 6:07:48 PM
Computer: SERVER NAME
The description for Event ID ( 8214 ) in Source ( Windows SharePoint Services 3 ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: A request was made for a URL, http://
<servername>, which has not been configured in Alternate Access Mappings. Some links may point to the Alternate Access URL for the default zone, http://
<friendly name>. Review the Alternate Access mappings for this Web application at http://
aspx and consider adding http://
<servername> as a Public Alternate Access URL if it will be used frequently. Help on this error: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=114854
In some instances it's the same error only the server name and friendly name are reversed in the error.
I'm at a loss as to how to configure AAMs here. This SPP is only for Intranet/Extranet purposes for the local LAN and across a VPN to a remote site.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
