[Mailman-Users] Unknown Virtual Host question

The issue you have is you are trying to access the web interface over a virtual host (x.x.x.x) which isn't defined.  You can change your Windows Hosts file to point lists.domain.com at your new IP whilst you do the setup and testing, that is what I did when I had to move a bunch of lists over to a new server.

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Unknown Virtual Host question

I'm setting up a new Mailman implementation on a new machine that's a virtual copy of a running production machine. I'm expecting problems because I'm trying to use the same domain name in two places, and I absolutely understand that's not going to work, but the bottom line is, the faster I get the new machine up and functional, the faster the old one will just go away and not bother me any more (LOL). So, on the new machine, I'm trying to create email lists via the Web interface at my new machine's IP address. When I log in with the Mailman administrator account and password and attempt to create a new list, I get the message "unknown virtual host at x.x.x.x" where 'x.x.x.x' is the IP address of the new machine. Is this caused by the fact that my A-record points to the old machine, or because my new machine is trying to validate against the old one somehow? If I were to stop Mailman on the old system temporarily and swing my A-record over to the new machine, would this solve the problem long enough for me to get lists created? If so, then I might as well just do the deed for real, and get the old machine out of the equation completely. What's best to do here?
