I have a sharepoint site at spsandbox.blah.local for some reason when a site gets created such as app.spsandbox.blah.local the DNS does not resolve. I tried creating a DNS entry for *.spsandbox.blah.local but that isn't working either. Am I missing something?

How are you creating your site?  Generally a site URL is like http://sharepoint.domain.local/sitename .
But if you've really created a site at http://app.spsandbox.blah.local, just create a new A record for "app.spsandbox" in the "blah.local" zone (that is unless you have a zone for "spsandbox.blah.local", then just create the A record for "app" inside that).

You need to create a sub domain for spsandbox within this domain you will have the records for app for example or any other sites.

The problem is that when a Dev creates a new app it autocreates that sub-domain and appends it with a SID so you can't manually do that for every app that they create.

When you have multiple sites you will need to create DNS entries for that site since it is a subdomain. Now if you had something like this http://www.spsandbox.blah.local/app that wouldn't be required

To expand on the answer from dariusg

presuming your internal domain is blah.local

create a subdomain for spsandbox.blah.local

if you already have an A record for spsandbox.blah.local then delete it

within the spsandbox.blah.local domain, create an A record without a name, but with the IP address for the server. It will show the hostname as <(same as parent folder)> without the <>

Test resolution of the server name.

now create a subdomain for * within the spsandbox.blah.local domain.

within the *.spsandbox.blah.local domain, create an A record without a name, but with the IP address for the server. It will show the hostname as <(same as parent folder)> without the <>

Now you should be able to resolve any valid hostname.spsandbox.blah.local to the IP address that you configured.
