The "Sharepoint" application is not present, after configuring alternate access mapping for the Central Administration web site.

SUMMARY

I don't see the Sharepoint application after configuring alternate access mapping for the Central Administration web site.

ISSUE

Purpose

The system is failing to show the Share Point in the web interface.

Description

The system is failing to show the SharePoint in the web interface, and following message is seen in the wbps.log on the SharePoint client:
Jul 15 14:57:24 : Windows SharePoint Services Administration: started  Jul 15 14:57:24 : 'Central Administration' site  isn't deployed on server 'Server Name'.  Jul 15 14:57:24 : Unitrends SQL ODBC agent did not found SharePoint.  

Cause

The BP Service uses an internal URL to identify the Central Administration (CA) web site.

Resolution

 Step 1. Find the internal CA URL
    Open the SharePoint Central Administration site.
        For SharePoint 2010/2013: In the System Settings, open Configurealternate access mappings.
        For SharePoint 2007: In the top navigation bar, click Operations.
    On the Operations page, in the Global Configuration section, click Alternate access mappings.
    On the Alternate Access Mappings page, look up the internal URL for the Central Administration site.
    An example: https:\\servername:13479.

Step 2. Change the CentralAdministrationURL registry value

    Start a Windows command prompt usgint the 'Run as administator' option.
    Type the following command: regedit
    Open the registy key value and edit:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\15.0\WSS\CentralAdministrationURL for Sharepoint 2013
    or
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\14.0\WSS\CentralAdministrationURL for SharePoint 2010
    or
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0\WSS\CentralAdministrationURL for SharePoint 2007
    Change the public URL to the the internal URL for Central Administration site you found in step 1.
