Try
:



Code:
# space and colon 
$ awk -F'[: ]' '{.........}' file

$ awk  '{.........}' FS='[: ]' file

$ awk 'BEGIN{FS=":| "}{........}' file


# colon and space together 
$ awk  '{.........}' FS=": " file 

$ awk 'BEGIN{FS=": "}{........}' file

awk -F': ' or FS = ": ".
[: ] matches : and <space> as single characters.
