Good day,

I hv setup a dev site called http://portal. Then I configure the "Alternate Access Mapping" for the site as https://portal.xyz.com for Internet and https://portal for Extranet.

All works well for the dev site except MySite and Search Center Site. MySite is configured to http://portal:80/sites/mysite and Search Center is configured to http://portal:80/sites/SearchCenter/Pages . I accessed the dev site through https://portal.xyz.com, but when I click on My Site, it will redirect me back to http://portal/sites/mysite instead of https://portal.xyz.com/sites/mysite .

Is there any configuration that I can set to configure the Alternate Access Mapping for that as well I tried to configure through My Site Settings in Shared Services Administration page, even though I tried to override both to point to https://portal.xyz.com, it seems to reset back to http://portal when I attempted to save it.

Thanks.

That sounds strange to me. I've got a separate web app for My Sites and configured AAM to match my portal site mappings. This works perfectly for me. When I access the portal using http://intranet, the My Site link redirects to http://intranet:40000. When I access it from the outside, with https://extranet.company.com , it redirects me to https://extranet.company.com:40000.

However in your case where My Sites live on the same portal web app, your AAM should work just fine. I would check that in SSP administration your My Sites target matches your Default zone URL. I guess it should be http://portal/sites/mysite

hi,

finally i manage to resolve the issue by trial and error. wat i did is

under Shared Services Administration: SharedServices1 > My Site Settings > Personal Site Location , i replaced the value with the obsolute path (http://portal:80/staff) instead of relative path (staff) and it works now. Somehow the example given is misleading :D

Example: http://portal_site/location/personal_site/

Anyway, not sure it's a correct solution but for the time being it works

Thanks.
