ITS will update the DNS record to point to new server. If your department is using NS5.hku.hk or is managing a departmental DNS server to manage department domain, please configure the domain name by updating the DNS record to “CNAME webcloud01.hku.hk”, For example: abc.its.hku.hk

 

               abc         1800      IN           CNAME                webcloud01.hku.hk.

 

Please note there is a “.” after “webcloud.hku.hk.“

If the domain name is a root domain of NS5, please configure the domain name by adding below 1 “A” record. For example: its.hku.hk

 

               (empty) 1800 IN A 147.8.204.239
