Ok, that's pretty much what I was expecting you to say.

That's good to hear.  When I get a chance, I'll try again with my
resolver pointing to that IP.

Is there any way to work around the 36 hour DNS interval?  I'm happy
to migrate as soon as everything is functional, but I'd rather not
take a 36-hour outage to my web content if I don't have to.

For instance, could I set a small TTL on the domain, wait a few days,
then migrate again and see DNS updated more quickly?  I see how to set
a small TTL on a subdomain using dnsIP, but I don't see an obvious way
to do it for the main cedar-solutions.com domain.

Ok.  If/when you'd like me to test those fixes, feel free to ping me
(privately or on-list).

Yeah, that seems like a good idea.  I suspect that the more of us who
are using basic configuration, the easier this will go the next time.

Yep, no problem.
