We recently had a Microsoft Sharepoint Risk Assessment done and one of the many items that was pointed out was the fact all of our sites are in one zone "Default"

Now I did not setup Sharepoint from the start but my manager has asked me to separate out internal and external Sharepoint access into seperate AAM's. Now I have never done this before and here are my questions.

1) Right now our internal and external sharepoint site used the same URL. CAn I still keep the same URL scheme going forward but using different zones?

2) Our Sharepoint site use a public cert and our internal Sharepoint site uses SSL as well will changing the zone settings affect this?

3) Can incorrect Zone mapping cause poor Sharepoint performace?

For a detailed discussion of point 3 (and the answer is YES!) take a look at

With regard to item 2, there is no reason you cannot use the same certificate for both sites.

What sounds scary to me is that, based on your description of the issue, you have internal-use-only sites on the same physical box that you have publicly-accessible sites on.

I would actually consider moving the internal site(s) to a separate server/cluster from the public site(s).

thanks for the great reply...

I read the article you posted on AAM and it was very interesting.

If I want to keep the same URL from my internal and external zone then I would do the following.

1) Extent my existing URL https URL *Cert is already load on all sharepoint server and imported into SharePoint*

2) Create a new AAM for the extranet

3) Test and make sure everything works.

From the article I found the improper AAM can slow down crawl but can it affect overall site  / browsing access to the sites???

I think there are a number of problem with out SharePoint set and trying to pick one item off at a time.

Also, I notice that in sharepoint when user click on a link which bring them to another site which used to host an old Moss2007 site it is painfully slow. Now when users access this site they go from https to http and the old Moss2007 site was imported into SharePoint 2010

Thanks again
