Title: old Domain re-directed to New, Sitemap still getting read by old profile on webmaster

I had shifted my old domain to a new domain few days back. The old domain has been 301 re-directed to the new domain as well.
However, when I upload Sitemap for the new domain, it gets updated against the olf site profile on Google webmaster tool.

Please let me know if anyone can guide me resolve this problem.

I do believe it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do.

g### asks for sitemap of olddomain.com

Request for olddomain.com/sitemap.xml is redirected to newdomain.com/sitemap.xml

g### accepts sitemap and files it under olddomain.com, since that's what they originally asked for.

I am feeling dizzy.

Are you shutting down the old domain? There's a place somewhere in gwt where you can tell them you're moving.
