Prevent SharePoint Server Name in URL

Hello,

In our environmnet we have personal/my sites disabled.  When you click on a user name it is redirected to Central Admin to view the GAL information.  However when a user click on a name the URL goes from http://companysite to http://servername:portnumber....  

Could some help explain how I can change that so it can go though a registered DNS rather than the server name?  Will a Alternate access mapping help for this?  

Thanks!

what do you mean by redirected to Central Admin your users have access to Central Admin.
.
How did you created the site, have you used hostheaders for the port being used and add in the DNS...
Alternate mapping can help but i hope your are not talking about changing the URL of Central Admin Site....

Sorry.  Not Central Admin but a seperate web application that will pull the global address list.  

I'll try playing around with the AAM.  There hasn't been any hostheaders setup for the port.

Thanks

Extend the web application in another zone with your required url and that should solve your problem.
Dont directly make a url entry in AAM settings.

I haven't had a chance to follow through with this but think this will work once I get a chance to try it.
