Wildcard DNS A record

Hi,
 
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..

    1st no such thing exist from a DNS RR for "wildcard" domain in our FortiOS appliances
     
    2nd what specifically are you trying todo? And why do you think you need it ?
     
    I seen alot of mis-use for . "wildcard" A record an it will screw up search engines.

    I need to make an A-record that will look at one IP from several sub-domains.

    For example *.example.com = 192.168.x.x

    I have the same problem. It very serious problem for me. My case is:
    We have 3 servers that dinamical generate web servers (Kubernetes-stand) for testing product. Each web-server has unique name (subdomain) an is located on one of three servers.  
    *.example.com 192.168.1.1
    *.example.com 192.168.1.2
    *.example.com 192.168.1.3
    As a result, when I change the microtic to fortigate I can not send developers to the desired web server.
