SharePoint 2013 Mistake 401 Illegal on /_layouts/15/start.aspx

I experienced this mistake these days, along with a log concept in the ULS saying: cannot discover website search details for demand Uri

When browsing directly to the site home page or any other page it worked perfectly. Just this page /_layouts/15/start.aspx returned access denied error.
I googled googled, and even binged but could not find a solution.
Until it occurred to me – alternate access mappings!!!
It appears I didn’t set the site URL as an alternate access mapping for this web application.
A quick trip to central administration fixed that:
Client on “Configure alternate access mappings”:


Change to your web application:


Click “Edit Public URLs


And add your new header in any of the text boxes:


Done! Now it is operating as expected
