Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am configuring a SharePoint 2013 On-Premise App Catalog. I created a new forward lookup zone per Microsoft Technet instructions here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/fp161236.aspx

My domain name is test.local. I created a new primary forward lookup zone using name testapps.local. I added a new wildcard Alias (CNAME) record using * as the Alias name, so *.testapps.local as the FQDN. My FQDN for target host is SHAREPOINT2013.test.local, which is where my SharePoint sites are running.

Now when I ping testapps.local I do not receive a response. I set up per Technet instructions, so not sure what could be the problem. I configured using test.local administrator account.

Thanks for any help provided...

can you provide the ping and nslookup outputs as well as screenshots of the testapps.local DNS zone info and CNAME/A records? –  TheCleaner Apr 24 '13 at 16:25

Why would testapps.local respond? That's your DNS zone, that's not your CNAME. Your CNAME is *, so pinging "anything".testapps.local should respond, like joebob.testapps.local, or sharepoint.testapps.local, etc. –  joeqwerty Apr 24 '13 at 16:49
    
joeqwerty - you are right. I had misinterpreted the technet publishing. I am good. Thanks. –  obautista Apr 24 '13 at 17:19
