I have recently upgraded MDM 7.1 from SP05 to SP08 on Windows Server 2003. As it was a test server, I went ahead with upgrading directly and not level by level. During installation I could not use the default port for MDLS server. I got the server restarted but the port 59450 was still busy. I continued the installation with a non default port 59451.
MDLS Server was running, but I was not able to mount the server through console but when I try to mount it as <hostname>:<port number> it works fine.
The end users are facing an issue with connecting to MDLS via MDM Publisher console. Could anyone please suggest a work around.
