I've created a new test farm. I have the default Web Application and Root Site Collection that were created with Config Wizard which I can browse perfectly fine at sp16-01.vanguard.com:
If I create a new Web Application, using default settings & authentication (NTLM), with a new Root Site Collection with a name that I want e.g. white.vanguard.com:
I'm unable to browse the Root Site Collection. I message that is returned is:
"Server IP address could not be found"
I've tried the following with no success:
- Adding an A record in DNS to point white.vanguard.com to the WFE IP,
- Enabled Anonymous Access,
- Giving Full Control in User Policy for the Web Application
When I add the A record in DNS I am prompted for authentication but none of my accounts work (SPFarm, SPAdmin, Administrator).
I'm missing a step here. Could someone please enlighten me?
EDIT: Added screenshots below for AAM, DNS, IIS and Hosts file. As mentioned this is out of the box. I've tried A record and CNAME in DNS, AAM entries, bindings and hosts file entry but cannot get the site to load.
EDIT2: I'm trying to browse the site from the WFE.
