Wildcard DNS A record

I need to setup a wildcard domain to get an internal file hosting server running. How can i go about this? I am using the DNS server in Fortigate 101E. When i tried to put a * in the hostname field when creating an A record, the UI says it is an invalid domain.
Any help or guidance will be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Yes "*" is indeed an invalid domain since that would mean every domain in the whole world :)
    I gues what you want is something like "any subdomain" of your domain.
    I'd try to set this as FQDN...however I up to now never needed this on a FGT DNS so cannot say for sure..
