SharePoint Internet site redirection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My client has an internet facing SharePoint site e.g. and we have set up the DNS server with a local domain for the UK site pointing to (this works fine)

    At this point we are able to browse to which is redirecting to

    I have verified that we are able to browse the sub-site for example: anonymously. However when we visit the page:  it's prompting for ID and password.

    Cancelling the log-in prompt would give an error:
    XML Parsing Error: no element found
    Line Number 1, Column 1:

    I don't understand why the root site is redirecting and the sub-site is not, considering it is a branch of the root site. Any help will be much appreciated.



    Thanks, Sabs Banerjee

  • Hi Sabs,

    Check the following things.

    First, the url of the sub site is independent, you should also set DNS server redirect for sub site.

    Second, the redirected url should be added to Alternate access mapping.
