  • Specifically see Unor's answer on the duplicate question: webmasters.stackexchange.com/a/82743 All URLs in a sitemap must be on the same subdomain where the sitemap is hosted. You will have to create multiple sitemaps and host the sitemap for each subdomain on that subdomain – Stephen Ostermiller Mar 19 '18 at 14:50

I'll recommend you to create one sitemap per subdomain and use a sitemaps index file. That way you can see the evolution in Google Search Console for each subdomain.

I treat subdomain as images or videos (each in a separate sitemap).
