APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0



SYMPTOMS

You open a new .aspx Web page on a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site. Then, you click an embedded link. However, the link does not point to the correct URL. This issue occurs after you back up the content database and then restore the content database to a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 server in a different domain.

CAUSE

This issue occurs if the following conditions are true:

  • You restore a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 content database.
  • The Alternate Access Mappings feature in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 does not contain the correct URL of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site.


RESOLUTION

To resolve this issue, add the URL of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site to the alternate access mappings. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Use an account that has administrative permissions to log on to the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 server on which you restored the content database.
  2. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration.
  3. On the Central Administration page, click Operations.
  4. Under Global Configuration, click Alternate Access Mapping.
  5. On the Alternate Access Mappings page, click Add Incoming URLs.
  6. On the Add Incoming URLs page, type the URL of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site in the New default zone URL protocol, host and port box.


For example, type http://SharePointSite. Replace the SharePointSite placeholder with the name of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site.

  1. Click Save.


MORE INFORMATION

  2. Back up a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 content database.
