Sharepoint - AAM issue
Calling all SP gurus!
I've got an internal Sims Learning Gateway 2 site which I've recently made available externally by setting up AAM and using ISA 2006 as a reverse proxy.
So - https://gateway.domain.com forwards requests to http://server:8080/SLG
This has been working fine and AAM has been working perfectly so far... until (!) one of our IT Teachers started to create folders within a document library.
So - document library is at "https://gateway.domain.com/SLG/Teachers/ict/Staff%20Resources/Forms/AllItems.aspx"
When you hover over the folders within the document library the URL appears to be "AAM'd" correctly - e.g. "https://gateway.domain.cm/SLG/Teachers/ict/Staff%20Resources/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2fSLG%2fTeachers%2fict%2 fStaff%20Resources%2fYear%2010&FolderCTID=&View=%7 bBC87E501%2dC934%2d44A1%2dB907%2dA0B1D1A74E8B%7d"
BUT... when you click the link it reverts to the internal URL, and thus externally you get a 404.
I'm confused... I don't get it. If you right-click the folder and choose copy-shortcut and paste it into the address bar the link will work.

I've followed both of those guides - but haven't carried out the "Extending an existing web application" part as I thought this was unnecessary as users access the site internally using the machine name rather than a DNS alias - is that correct or am I getting the wrong end of the stick?
Yep - using forms based authentication with ISA 2006.

hmmm, if I understand it correctly, you'll need to do it for the external site - otherwise what you're seeing above will happen.
It needs to know what addresses to serve, and the application is only serving internal at the moment.
So, I'd do it for the external address

Hmm... perhaps you're right.
I have setup AAM for the external URL though... I assumed that this would be enough.

for the site yes, but I assume the application needs to know whats going on, as that is supplying this section

SharePoint really makes my head hurt...

You were absolutely right Domino - I've extended the site and now it works.
Thank you very much indeed!
