Heres the sitch:

I have two websites:

I want :
admin.domain1.com to go to admin.domain2 through a CNAME.

I have setup a sub-domain on domain2.com for admin.domain2.com and I setup a CNAME record on domain1.com for admin.domain1.com that points to admin.domain2.com... However when I go to admin.domain1.com it just goes to domain2.com and not the sub-domain, Any ideas?
