Departments within our organization have file directories on our IIS7 2008 R2 server similar to \\apollo\marketing.oems, which are outward facing for clients. We would like to create masked directories for quicker access like \\marketing that would point to \\apollo\marketing.oems. I've done research and have not come across any real answers, although I know it's possible

Any help would be appreciated.

You just create a new website which:

  • points to the marketing.oems folder as its physical path.
  • uses the host header "marketing"

Then, create a DNS alias "marketing" that points the hostname marketing to the IP address used by the server.
