Wildcard on A record conflicts with CNAME?
I seem to be having trouble with ISPConfig 3's DNS entries from one of my site's requirements. I have an A record wildcard to my ip address (private for illustration below). I'm trying to use a content delivery network, but my pings aren't resolving correctly. So my domain is say xyz.com. I have for xyz.com the following:
A * 123.456.789.1
A mail 123.456.789.1
CNAME cdn super.cdnserver.com
When I ping my cdn.xyz.com it resolves to super.cdnserver.com.xyz.com. Is this right? How can I get a CNAME to point to another domain, as it appears to be just tacking onto my domain xyz.com.
Is the wildcard A record causing the problem, or is ISPConfig 3 DNS not writing the files correctly?
