BlackBerry Enterprise Server MDS Connection Can not Start

Dear all:

I have a issue for BES version migration,
Currently I install Blackberry enterprise Server on server (cnshbes01.wsi.com.cn), we shall move to another new server (cnshbes02.wsi.com.cn)
so I do the process as below:

1. Install the BES to new server (cnshbes02.wsi.com.cn)
2. The same BES name when BES install
3. Stop the old server (cnshbes01.wsi.com.cn) SQL services
4. Copy the database Besmgmt.mdf, Besmgmt.ldf (C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data) from old blackberry server (cnshbes01.wsi.com.cn) to New server (cnshbes02.wsi.com.cn)
5. Start the all BES services in new server (cnshbes02.wsi.com.cn)

I found the BES MDS services could not start, when I start this services the services automatic stopping. I found the register

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\BlackBerry MDS Connection Service
Double-click ImagePathValue.

"C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\MDS\bin\bmds.exe" -s jvmpath="C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_07\bin\client\jvm.dll" -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -Xss64K -Xmx768M -Xms128M classpathdir="C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\MDS\classpath\\" wrkdir="C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\MDS\Servers\Halifax\\" webserverdir="C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\MDS\webserver\\" -rbes "cnshbes02_MDS-CS_1"

but In Blackberry Manger the server was cnshbes01 & cnshbes01_MDS-CS_1

How can I do for this issue ?
