Absolute URL Is Returned When You Use the Channel.Url Method of the PAPI and Host Headers Are Enabled

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
When host headers are enabled, requests that another host header name makes of the Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) computer are represented incorrectly in links that the server generates. The server displays the host header name that is specified in MCMS instead of the host header name that the originating request specifies.
When you use the Map Channel Names to Host Header Names feature, MCMS uses the host header names that are specified by the first level of channels to represent the host header name. When you use the MCMS Publishing Application Programming Interface (PAPI) and a third-party URL manipulation ISAPI filter, any requests for the URL appear with the channel name (instead of the host header name that is specified in the originating URL) as the host header name.
