Added DNS Entry, but unable to ping it (Windows Server 2008 Std)

I've just installed Win Server 2008 Std for a test environment, and i've setuped a DHCP Server & DNS Server on it.  

I've just added a DNS Entry to it, but when i'm on the server and try to ping it, it says that it could not find the host.  I've double checked the IP of this entry, and it's ok.

I've tried restarting the DNS Server, but still unable to ping it.

Thank for your help

Yes, this server is also the domain controller.  I'm just settuping a VM with VirtualBox with everything in it.  (I just want to point out because "Security" is not an issue here)

The Domain is office1.mycompany.com.
The entry is wpad.office1.mycompany.com, and point to itself (fixed IP at 192.168.101.6).

When i look at the network card TCP setup, the DNS is 127.0.0.1, so it should be looking at its local DNS server first...

That is what I suspect..thats why i asked you teh name of host record

WPAD resolution is by default blocked on windows DNS server

You need to delete entry from below registry for that
Open registry on DNS server and navigate to below registry path
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DNS\Parameters and open "GlobalQueryBlocklist" REG Multi string value.
Delete WPAD entry from there and restart the dns service
This will resolve your problem
