Restructuring some structures for our upcoming SharePoint 2010 intranet migration we come across some questions for which it is difficult to find the best solution. All the examples below is for internal intranet URLs.
We have two web applications that we want to be simply accessible as
http://webapp1 and http://webapp2 on the intranet. This must also support URLs to site collections under the root as
http://webapp1/sitecol2 and so forth. So we need to create DNS cname records and host headers. Is the best way to accomplish this to use Managed Paths Internal URLs or is there a better way?
We have a third web application containing several site collections for which we would like to have direct URL access as
http://sitecolA, http://sitecolB etc. Are we limited to using Host Header Site Collections and thereby having to live with the limitations of that or is there a better way?
PS! We do not like the options to be done in IIS as we want SharePoint to be aware of and use these simple URLs.
