I'm can't access my sharepoint site from the sharepoint server itself, but accessing from other workstations in the network is no problem.
I've created a standard "Alternate access mapping" for https://sharepoint.domain.com. I've created a local DNS A host record on the DNS server (which is also the sharepoint server) pointing to the server ip adress.
When try to open the URL mentioned above in a browser on the server I get a "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage, It appears you are connected to the Internet, but you might want to try to reconnect to the Internet." When I do the same thing on a workstation the sharepoint site appears.
The result of a nslookup on the server reveals that "sharepoint.domain.com" points to the ip adress of the server.
Why am I not able to access the site from the server? This problem also causes my search crawl to fail.
Any suggestions ? :)
