Works! Sure is a more simple way to look at this... If you put your comment as an answer I'll mark it as accepted.

comment Azure blob storage custom domain verification - Azure telling me to create CNAME for non-existent address
Interesting-I just tried this from old portal and got result I expected: "To verify auth, create CNAME record...that points from [subdomain].yourdomain.com to hcblobstorage.blob.core.windows.net." hcblobstorage... is my actual storage account name and it's resolvable (by defn). I think something was broken w/ the new portal bc in my experience w/ Azure custom domains they've always had me create a cname to a resolvable address, in particular mystorageaccount.blob.core.windows.net. Regardless I totally agree w/ your point about DNS though-the address doesn't need to be valid to be verified.

Wow, totally great point- I am embarrassed I missed that! But then given that the address they have me point to doesn't resolve, what do I ultimately point my custom domain name to once they verify me?

comment Looking for recommendations on how to evaluate replacement of on-premise server with new server or go to cloud
Moderators - my response to the "opinion-based" thing is to say that I am looking not for the solution but rather for the ways in which I should consider the options. Identifying options for consideration is more of a fact-based exercise than opinion. It would be opinion if I was asking which was better, cloud or premise. I will re-word my title and question to better express this intent.

Could you post that as an answer? I don't agree about user vs sysadmin question. Lets say I changed the problem statement to say the remote admin configured ACLs on his Internet router/firewall to deny my range. In that case you could prove this conclusively by using network tools. I felt it was worth asking this question to see if there were options. In other words, the fact that the answer to the question in this scenario is "no" doesn't invalidate the question or make it a user question.

I updated the question to say that I am unable to communicate with that person. I am looking for a technical answer.
