We have an old Sever 2003 (SRV123) that runs our internal Intranet and statistics software for clients. I am moving this intranet to a 2008R2 server (Web567) due to space issues. The 2003 statistics server will still be in production.
Now all our client users have PCs that default to the Intranet page (http://SRV123
) when you launch your browser, Plus they have shortcuts on desktop to http://SRV123
Now my question is when I move the intranet to the new server (Web567.companyname.local)
, how can I make the clients shortcuts and browsers redirect to the new server Web567 without changing all the shortcuts and group policy settings on local machines and not affecting the statistics server?
Was hoping this could be done in DNS, maybe CNAME….?
Not sure of the direction I need to take.
We are a 2008 R2 domain with Windows 7 clients.
