Help Creating a new Sharepoint 2013 Web Application and Site Collection

Last Modified: 2015-04-08
Good Day,

I need some quick and dirty help. I have been put into a corner with my Sharepoint environment, literally next week I take the Sharepoint 2013 boot camp but my CIO started a new on-boarding process with the purchase of Nintex. This is working fine in my Test environment but that is a single server the problem that I am having is creating a new web application and site collection. I have a 3 Tier farm, 1 WFE, 2 Application and 2 SQL Servers.

I installed sharepoint but did not do any of the farm configuration until this push, so I ended up using the the farm wizard to complete the environment :(.

When trying to create a new WebApplication called Myforms I want it resolvable by fqdn and hostname, I have tried multiple ways but everytime I go to the site in IE I get the nasty 401 error which I cannot get pass.

Can someone please help me quickly with the this setup, it will only be accessed internally.
