    DNS and IIS

    We have a server with IIS installed, and it seems to have several 'websites' running on the same port but under different instance names.

    In a HOSTS file if we added

    10.1.2.3 iisinstance

    That seems to work

    But if we add the instance name with the server IP to the DNS it means when someone goes to iisinstance.ourdomain.com it comes up with the default instance.

    Does this post make any sense? And if so how do we rectify the problem?

    Sounds like IIS isn't setup for iisinstance.domainname (just iisinstance)

    Ah!

    Didn't realize the host header value required the .ourdomain.com sticking on the end

    Cheers
