Manage alternate access mappings (Windows SharePoint Services Central Administration Help)

SharePoint 2007

Applies To: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Each Web application can be associated with a collection of mappings between internal and public URLs. Both internal and public URLs consist of the protocol and domain portion of the full URL (for example, https://www.fabrikam.com). A public URL is what users type to get to the SharePoint site, and that URL is what shows up in the links on the pages. Internal URLs are in the URL requests that are sent to the SharePoint site. Many internal URLs can be associated with a single public URL in multiserver farms (for example, when a load balancer routes requests to specific IP addresses to various servers in the load-balancing cluster).

Each Web application supports five collections of mappings per URL; the five collections correspond to five zones (default, intranet, extranet, Internet, and custom). When the Web application receives a request for an internal URL in a particular zone, links on the pages returned to the user will have the public URL for that zone.

To manage alternate access mappings:

  1. On the top navigation bar, click Operations.

  2. On the Operations page, in the Global Configuration section, click Alternate access mappings.

What do you want to do?

Add an internal URL

  1. On the Alternate Access Mappings page, click Add Internal URLs.

  2. If the mapping collection that you want to modify is not selected, on the Add Internal URLs page, in the Alternate Access Mapping Collection section, click Change alternate access mapping collection on the Alternate Access Mapping Collection menu.

  3. On the Select an Alternate Access Mapping Collection page, click a mapping collection.

  4. In the Add internal URL section, in the URL protocol, host and port box, type the new internal URL (for example, https://www.fabrikam.com).

  5. In the Zone list, click the zone for the internal URL.

  6. Click Save.

Edit or delete an internal URL

NoteNote:

You cannot delete the last internal URL for the default zone.

  1. On the Alternate Access Mappings page, click the internal URL that you want to edit or delete.

  2. In the Edit internal URL section, modify the URL in the URL protocol, host, and port box.

  3. In the Zone list, click the zone for the internal URL.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • Click Save to save your changes.

    • Click Cancel to discard your changes and return to the Alternate Access Mappings page.

    • Click Delete to delete the internal URL.

Edit public URLs

NoteNote:

There must always be a public URL for the default zone.

  1. On the Alternate Access Mappings page, click Edit Public URLs.

  2. If the mapping collection that you want to modify is not selected, on the Edit Public Zone URLs page, in the Alternate Access Mapping Collection section, click Change alternate access mapping collection on the Alternate Access Mapping Collection menu.

  3. On the Select an Alternate Access Mapping Collection page, click a mapping collection.

  4. In the Public URLs section, you may add new URLs or edit existing URLs in any of the following text boxes:

    • Default

    • Intranet

    • Extranet

    • Internet

    • Custom

  5. Click Save.

Map to an external resource

You can also define mappings for resources outside internal Web applications. To do so, you need to supply a unique name, initial URL, and a zone for that URL (the URL must be unique to the farm).

  1. On the Alternate Access Mappings page, click Map to External Resource.

  2. On the Create External Resource Mapping page, in the Resource Name box, type a unique name.

  3. In the URL protocol, host and port box box, type the initial URL.

  4. Click Save.
