Hi, I am using IIS 6.0 and WebSphere Application Server v5.1 to host my intranet based website. Currently WebSite can be accessed by the hostname, Ex. [xyzmachine.com...] Instead of machine name I want to use DNS Alias, Ex. [dnsalias-qa...] I already registered my alias with the DNS Server and it is pointing to the xyz machine.
When I am trying to access application using dns alias [dnsalias-qa...] it is going to right place but automatically changning the address to [xyzmachine.com...] I don't want to show [xyzmachine.com...] Please guide me how to achieve this. Thanks in advance.

Have you added your DNS alias to the "host headers" of the website within the IIS manager?
