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...
