I have a developer that has asked me to create two DNS  entries,

ministry.undev.domain.org
schooladmin.undev.domain.org

I created them, but  they are not coming up when I ping them. Here's what my DNS manager looks like.

So the entry is created, as it's evident in the picture.
When I do a ping ministry.undev.domain.com I get the error "ping request could not find the host ministry.undev.domain.com. please check the name and try again"

When I do a ping undev.domain.com it works fine, I get replies

Is it because with DNS, it can only have one 2 periods, like xxxx.domain.com   or did I do something wrong?
