Hello Experts, i have this question. I have to change my MOSS 2010 URl to some other name. But by default it picks up the servername. I need to install sharepoint on the other machine but i want the names of the url still having the same old server name.
Say my old URL is : http://OLDServer/SitePages/Test.aspx
. After deploying my sites to other machines, it will be changed to http://NewServer/SitePages/Test.aspx
. I want to change it back to http://OLDServer/SitePages/Test.aspx
. So in a way, user will hit the old url and it will route to new one. Also I will discard our old server.
I know about Alternate access mapping feature but i need to know exact step by step instruction, also how i will make a DNS entry in the DNS server. If possible, please give me complete steps.
