Question:
How can we redirect end users from the IIS home page to the Service Desk Manager home page?
Answer:
1. From the SDM server, go to C:/inetpub/wwwroot and locate iisstart.htm. This file is what loads up the Default IIS page. 

2. Make a back up of this file, as we will be changing some values here. 

3. Open up the original file, and locate the following line: 

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /> 

4. You can comment out this line, or remove it and replace it with the following: 

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://YourSDMurl/CAisd/pdmweb.exe" /> 

5. Save this file. 

6. Restart IIS 

7. Wait a couple of minutes and then try accessing the IIS Default homepage, and it should redirect you to http://YourSDMurl/CAisd/pdmweb.exe
