Creating new mysql db

Is there a delay in creating a new hostname/db? I’ve created a couple databases (and associated hostnames), along with a user for each one, and I cannot access the database either via control panel (I get page not found) or via shell access:

(shell error)
[slash]$ mysql -h life -u anderg -p life
Enter password:
ERROR 2005: Unknown MySQL Server Host ‘life’ (2)

(from Web panel)
MySQL Hostname

Gabe isn’t in the machine’s search path, so you need to use:
That said, there is a delay in setting this up, and doesn’t look like our primary nameserver knows about that hostname yet.
