This has to do with the problem - see below.

When you go the the listinfo or admin overview pages from machine2, you
will see no lists because all the lists are in the machine1 domain.
This is based on the web_page_url attribute of the list. See

Setting DEFAULT_URL_HOST and add_virtual_host in mm_cfg.py won't affect
this. What you need in mm_cfg.py is


so all lists will appear on all domain's overview pages.

You should be able to go to the admin/listname or listinfo/listname
page on machine2 even if listname is not shown on the overview.

What is in Mailman's 'error' log for this 'bug'?
