I have 2 domains mydomain.com and mydomain.net which I'm trying to track with the same GA code. Here are the options I turned on:

Subdomains of mydomain   ON
Examples: www.mydomain.com -and- apps.mydomain.com -and- store.mydomain.com

Multiple top-level domains of mydomain  ON
Examples: mydomain.uk -and- mydomain.cn -and- mydomain.fr

Which gave me the following code:

  _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-123456789-1']);
  _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', 'mydomain.com']);
  _gaq.push(['_setAllowLinker', true]);

In this help page I read that _setDomainName must be changed for each domain which I did:
-if you go to mydomain.net you get _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', 'mydomain.net']);
-if you go to mydomain.com you get _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', 'mydomain.com']);

When I generate traffic on both mydomain.dom and mydomain.net and watches GA push requests made with firebug I can see requests generated for both domains and the parameter called utmhn has the proper domain value (which matches that of _setDomainName and the browser address bar).

However when I monitor the realtime statistics under Home->Real-Time->Overview I see pageviews for mydomain.net BUT NOT for mydomain.dom :(

What am I missing to properly track both domains?

PS: in the help page I mentioned they talk about setting up cross links which I didn't do for now as my understanding is that it shouldn't be needed to get what I'm trying to do to work. Also I want to mention that I do not have any tracking code for any of these 2 domains other than the one I mentioned.

In the question I mentioned that I didn't have any other tracking codes for the domains which was true but the tracking codes had been removed recently so maybe this was what was causing the issue. Anyway what I did was:
-removed all the tracking codes
-waited 30 min
-created a new tracking code

Now everything is working fine.
