Dear all,

I would like to set up the following scenario on IIS web server.

1.  When user type 'portal' on browser, it will redirect to http://server1/country_portal
2. When user type "reporting' on browser, it will redirect to http://server1/region_reporting

I can create a CNAME records for 'portal' and 'reporting' to point to server1.  I get stuck on how to redirect to the corresponding sites with different alias as shown above.

Many thanks!

This is not possible using DNS as it won't work in the way that you want it to.

The CNAME record will allow "portal" and "reporting" to redirect to server1, but you can't append the web folder.

They would still need to use portal/country_portal and reporting/region_reporting.

IIS doesn't have anything built in to do this (unlike Apache which has something called Mod_Rewrite which allows you to do things like this).

However, you can get third party tools which add this functionality such as ISAPI REWRITE:-

This will allow you to scan the URL and redirect accordingly and is the only way to achieve this.
