How can I configure IIS so that I'm getting redirected to the ivy engine start page or a process start if I enter just the hostname in my browser? E.g http://example is redirected to http://example/ivy/info/index.jsp

To configure a redirect in Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) you need to install the IIS Role Service 'HTTP Redirection'. Open the Server Manager from Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Server Manager. Navigate to Server Manager > Roles on the tree at the left side. On the right side find the section Role Services and press the button Add Role Service. alt text Press Next > and Install and wait until the installation has finished then press Close. Close the Server Manager.

Open the Internet Information Service (IIS) Manager from Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Server (IIS) Manager. Navigate in the tree at the left side to the server and open on the left side in the Features View the HTTP Redirect feature. alt text Select the checkbox Redirect requests to this destination: and enter the URL you want to redirect to in the text field bellow. Select the checkboxes Redirect all requests to exact destination (instead of relatvie to destination) and Only select requests to content in this directory (not subdirectories). Select Found (302) as Status Code. Press Apply in the Actions section on the right side. alt text In the tree on the left side select the server and use the context menu Stop and afterwards Start to restart IIS. If you now open a browser an navigate to http://zugtstivydocsrv you will be redirected to http://zugtstivydocsrv/ivy/info/index.jsp

Hello Reto,

first you have to install the http redirect in your IIS alt text

after this go to the default website of your iis and choose redirect alt text

here you can enter the URL you want to redirect. please note that the URL needs an ? at the end of the URL. maybe you have to deactivate the redirect on the subsites.

alt text

hope that want you need

Hi Roland I have only asked the question so that I can document how to do that. But thanks for your quick answer anyway.
