cn national mirror domain (cn.releases.ubuntu.com and cn.archive.ubuntu.com)

Asked by alaleiwang on 2010-03-10

hi:
   we would like to become cn china national public mirror for the domain(cn.releases.ubuntu.com and cn.archive.ubuntu.com)(for some reason,the former domain maintainer mirrors.shlug.org decide to not to do it now)
   It seems the domain "cn.releases.ubuntu.com" has not been changed yet,as well as the domain "cn.rsync.releases.ubuntu.com".

Here are the dig result:
dig cn.releases.ubuntu.com ANY
;; ANSWER SECTION:
cn.releases.ubuntu.com. 600 IN CNAME releases.ubuntu.com.

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
ubuntu.com. 120845 IN NS ns1.canonical.com.
ubuntu.com. 120845 IN NS ns2.canonical.com.
ubuntu.com. 120845 IN NS ns3.canonical.com.

;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
ns1.canonical.com. 112915 IN A 91.189.94.173
ns2.canonical.com. 112915 IN A 91.189.94.219
ns3.canonical.com. 112915 IN A 209.6.3.210

At the same time,we would like also to maintain the domain " cn.archive.ubuntu.com".but now we find domain " mirrors.shlug.org"
is still alive for " cn.archive.ubuntu.com",and then jumped to our mirror

we can see the domain relation as we do:
dig cn.archive.ubuntu.com ANY
;; ANSWER SECTION:
cn.archive.ubuntu.com. 600 IN CNAME mirrors.shlug.org.

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
ubuntu.com. 120558 IN NS ns3.canonical.com.
ubuntu.com. 120558 IN NS ns2.canonical.com.
ubuntu.com. 120558 IN NS ns1.canonical.com.

;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
ns1.canonical.com. 112628 IN A 91.189.94.173
ns2.canonical.com. 112628 IN A 91.189.94.219
ns3.canonical.com. 112628 IN A 209.6.3.210

ping cn.archive.ubuntu.com

We hope the domain " cn.archive.ubuntu.com" be refered to our mirror directly

This looks like a request that should be made to the Ubuntu mirror admins. This does not look like an issue with the launchpad code.

Hi,

DNS has been updated. cn.archive, cn.releases and cn.rsync.releases all point to mirrors.sohu.com now. Please allow some time for the DNS changes to propagate to the rest of the internet.

Regards,
Herb
