- Status changed from Assigned to Reporter Feedback
- Assignee changed from Matt Gold to scott voth
Ah, gotcha. That sounds good. I've made the necessary changes on our end in advance, so that the switchover should be smooth when the time comes (though it won't be testable until then).

Here is an email I got from Bijan this afternoon:
"Here is the update.
I changed the CNAME alias via GoDaddy to point to commons.gc.cuny.edu, but cerg.commons.gc.cuny is redirecting to our old site hosted on the Graduate Center web server.
In the past I have linked the domain name to a new host by changing the name servers, and when I talked to GoDaddy support about the CNAME issue earlier this morning, they did not know how to help.

cerg.commons.gc.cuny.edu directs to their old server because I've mapped the domain on the Commons - so the Commons redirects cerg.commons to cergnyc.org, which is hosted externally. So that explains that. As for the CNAME record, all I can really tell is that the domain is currently resolving to 188.8.131.52. Maybe they have conflicting A and CNAME records? I'm afraid this is more of a question for the registrar (GoDaddy).
