I've got an odd problem I've seen on a few server 2016 iis servers. They host a website secured with a wildcard ssl cert (*.contoso.com). If I access the website from any other computer other than the webhost itself, it works fine with the public name
(ie https://webhost1.contoso.com .
However if I logon to the webhost1 server and try the public name...it never accepts the user credentials, it just continously keeps prompting for credentials. I have to logon via the hostname (https://webhost1.contoso.local) to access the website. Again
I only see this happen from the local server.
Anyone ever run into this and have a fix for it? I've tried adding the public name as an alternate name for the server, adding extra spn's with short name/fqdn. I verified the server can ping itself with the fqdn public name. Not sure what else to try.

loopback check (Method 2) first to see if you hit that.
If you do hit it, you might consider Method 1 instead of Method 2.
