Here is what is happening.
Currently in the console I can view both servers, was using this to facilitate transfer of users between servers (lot of contantly travelling users, not much opportunity to dock or load new soft).
The only catch is on the new server it is sharing hardware with McAfee ePO which already uses many ports MDS does, no big deal I assumed and changed the MDS default ports. Whenever MDS is started, it stops shortly afterward citing "....service has terminated unexpectedly x times...."
I have browsed through the BES logs but have not come across anything that has been of any revelation.
Also, since this is all push based, this server does not have to be public internet facing whatsoever correct?
