I have a web app that is currently reached by going to http://servername:24679
The users of this web app want to reach their SP site by using http://tardis
So I set up an AAM for that web app and set the intranet zone to http://tardis
The network admin then did his thing with the internal DNS.
Now when I browse to http://tardis
I go to the IIS7 welcome screen because it is resolving to the default IIS site on the server. If I go to http://tardis:24679
I get to the site fine.
How can I map to this name without having to specify the port name?
