    I generally add the following entries in the DNS zone file for the domain:

    Code:
     mail IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
    docs IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
    and so on...

    You shouldn't need to create the sub-domains manually.

    The above solution to edit the DNS zone (via WHM's DNS Functions) should work without issue to allow the desired sub-domains to be served from the Google Apps service; in addition, the same step of editing the DNS zone may be used for changing the MX records so the domain's mail exchanger (mail server) is also hosted by Google Apps.
