Hello all, first of all thank you for reading this post. Please bare with me, I am new with this environnement. I have had several problems in past week trying to configure a local sharepoint server 2013, most of it went well but now I am stuck and I badly need help! I intend to make sharepoint available through the Ethernet connection in my office.
Here is my config:
- Sharepoint 2013 (local)
- Microsoft SQL 2012
- Microsoft Server 2012
I am able to access the sub-site I created in the Sharepoint Central Administration Web Application.
My first problem is, I created another Web Application with the following URL config http://intranet.[domain].com but I am not able to access it through my browser. It seems to point to bad IP I probably configured accidentally a CNAME on my hosting Cpanel with the IP 192.168.1.199. So, When I ping the URL I do not get any connection. Just that it couldn't connect to 192.168.1.199. Now I added a CNAME on my CPANEL for the URL http://intranet.[domain].com --> 127.0.0.1. Is this the correct way to do it? But then, this will only allow to connect to the server in local. I want all the LAN users at my office to be able to connect to this intranet.
More information: The DNS manager has been configured following this tutorial:
Create SharePoint 2013 Web Application
I am not too sure of the proper configuration for the IIS Manager.
Anomymous Authentication is enabled
Windows Authentication is enabled
Everything else is disabled.
My second problem is that I cannot invite any user to the site. Even the one that have the email corresponding to our domain. Will I be able to invite parent domain users if the Web Apllication is properly configured with the CNAME on the Cpanel?
I tried to activate the External user invitation feature from Site Collection Features but it's not in the list. I am logged in as an administrator but next to the wrench it says "System Account" (with an arrow pointing down) so I guess this is the "logged in user as..."? Am I missing something here?
Finally, I am trying to add new subsite to the new site collection, but I can't seem to find any way to do it. All I have as an option to create subsite is for the Sharepoint Central Administration Web Application.
Any advices would be greatly welcomed. I've run out of ideas.
