26/11/2014

Step 1: Extend the Web Application

In the browser:

  1. Open SharePoint Central Administration
  2. Under Application Management select Manage web applications
  3. Select the web application you want to extend
  4. In the ribbon click on Extend
  5. Select Create a new IIS web site
  6. Enter a name, port and host header for your web application
  7. Choose your authentication type and select anonymous access if required
  8. Choose a zone and click OK
  9. Wait for the window to close, this can take some time
  10. Once completed do an IIS reset (Not always necessary)

Step 2: Create new site collection URL’s

  1. Open SharePoint Management Shell as Administrator
  2. Run the following PowerShell command where $currenturl is the URL of the site you want to access on another URL and $newurl is the new URL. Change the zone from custom to the required zone.
  3. Set-SPSiteURL(Get-SPSite $currenturl) -Url $newurl -Zone Custom

Step 3: Add Bindings

  1. Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
  2. Expand your server name and expand sites
  3. Right click on the site you created when you extended your web application and select Edit Bindings
  4. Click on Add
  5. In Host name enter the URL that you entered as your new URL in the previous PowerShell command
  6. Click Ok and click Close

Step 4: DNS / Host File

  1. If this is a development environment with no DNS servers add an entry to your hosts file for the new URL. If this is live then speak to your systems administrator to get a DNS entry created.

Have you forgotten about the WannaCry Cyber Attacks already?373<p style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">The NHS cyber attacks were less than two weeks ago yet it feels like it’s been far longer. So much has happened since and if updating your IT infrastructure was on your agenda but has now been put to one side due to other tasks taking priority read on…..</font></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">&#160;</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">Nobody in the IT world wants to say “I told you so” following &#160;the recent events but the NHS cyber attack should&#160;have made Managing Directors globally, &#160;sit up and listen to their IT advisors. Everyone knows that technology evolves at an alarming pace and our generation has seen the fastest change in this… at least until we land on Mars. </font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">&#160;</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">This means instead of ignoring the IT gurus, we should be taking on board their advice and expertise, particularly around cybersecurity; trust us, it’ll save you money in the long run. Why are we not listening to the experts who thankfully know everything about ransomware, patch management, nibbles, craplets and&#160;DOS attacks? (High five if you know any of that!)</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">&#160;</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">Put it this way&#58; If a doctor told you that you had a hole in your heart requiring immediate surgery, otherwise it’s game over, you would agree to it being patched up immediately, right? The health of your business is just as critical. The body of your business is reliant on your IT infrastructure for keeping your business profitable whilst also allowing the lunchtime google sessions! Your out of date software, your lack of adequate back up and your ancient operating system are causing holes that are potentially lethal for your business. </font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">&#160;</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">Hackers are more advanced now than ever before , potentially sitting In your system undetected for, on average, over two hundred&#160;days. You need to be ready with the most up-to-date defences you can. The most frustrating part of what has recently happened is that there will be companies out there who will listen to the news, read it in the papers and yet still take the risk, genuinely believing that it will happen to them. If it hasn’t already been drilled in, take a look at a breakdown of last years’ statistics&#58;</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">&#160;</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><a href="http&#58;//www.hackmageddon.com/category/security/cyber-attacks-statistics/"><span style="text-decoration&#58;underline;"><font color="#0563c1" face="Calibri" size="3">http&#58;//www.hackmageddon.com/category/security/cyber-attacks-statistics/</font></span></a></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">&#160;</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">Still don’t think you’re at risk?</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">&#160;​</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font face="Calibri"><font size="3"><font color="#000000">If the cost implication of a hack doesn’t shock you in to action (and after reading these five case studies from top corporate losses I think it will - </font><a href="https&#58;//hotforsecurity.bitdefender.com/blog/top-5-corporate-losses-due-to-hacking-1820.html"><span style="text-decoration&#58;underline;"><font color="#0563c1">https&#58;//hotforsecurity.bitdefender.com/blog/top-5-corporate-losses-due-to-hacking-1820.html</font></span></a></font></font><font face="Calibri"><font color="#000000" size="3">), then what about the other crippling effects of a hacking that, ultimately, could have been prevented?</font></font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">&#160;</font></span></p><p style="margin&#58;0px;"><span lang="EN-GB" style="margin&#58;0px;"><font color="#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">Your reputation would take a hit, especially if thousands of customer’s valuable data including their full names, logins, passwords, e-mails, home addresses, purchase history, and credit card numbers are stolen.
