I have a windows 2008 web server which contains a SECURE website: https://tools.mydomain.com
The website's IP has been registered to the public DNS server. The secured website certificate also associates to an IP address.
We need to shut this server and bring up another standby web server with a website with the same web content: https://tools1.mydomain.com
Is there a way for our users of https://tools.mydomain.com
to hit the standby server without making any change? If we update public dns entry to use the IP of the standby server when users hit https://tools.mydomain.com
, will that work?
