Subsequent installations will use port 3201, then port 3202 and then port 3203. However, the MDS service will not always bind to the correct port.. I think I need it set to 3201. This is the second install I have done on this machine. The first I botched by installing it under the domain admin login. Thi secind install was done under the bed service acoxxxx login. Does anyone know how to rest or change the MDS port in 4.0?
the knowledgebase article from RIM is applicable to 3.x and below only. you cannot have multiple virtual instances of BES/MDS on the same server anymore, so you will not need to change the port from the default due to the reasons you would need to in the past.
