Default.aspx not resolving for Central Admin?
I have found two workarounds for this:
- Alter the shortcuts on all front-end servers to go directly to the default.aspx page.
- Change the zone for Central Admin from Default to Intranet.
I have narrowed down the cause of the issue to include one of these conditions:
- Changing the front-end server hosting Central Admin using the Advanced button in Setup
- Using MOSS for Search with two or more front-end servers.
Changing the Central Admin via Setup alone won't always cause this. Using MOSS for Search also usually works. But in the cases where I have encountered this, one of the two conditions were true.
Please post a comment if you have seen this issue.
