    Help with setting up a subdomain redirect

    i'm trying to set up a subdomain called "" to redirect to another IP. In WHM, I went to "Modify DNS Zone" for, and added the A record:

    test 14400 IN A

    where "" is the destination IP hosting the actual site. But it's not working- entering "" goes nowhere.

    Thanks for the help.

    Propagation problem may be? Let us know the domain/subdomain

    The domain is a client's site with some sensitive info, so I can publically post the domain. But is there any way to diagnose where the problem is occuring? The subdomain redirect should work immediately after I set it up.

    Thanks. The dig command seems to show everything is set up correctly:
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.3 <<>>
    ;; global options:  printcmd

    Am I correct a subdomain redirect done using A record should work immediately upon set up, assuming of course destination IP is already working?

    Nevermind, it works now. Apparently the process is not instantanous, even though I don't see why not.
