I am currently deploying MPS for production and I have two sites with different subnets. These sites are connected via a TMG 2010 VPN link. I have the first site with MPS01 and PROV01 configured. I went to add MPS02 and I get this error:
Message: Server 'MPS02' fails at least one prerequisite check.
Inner Exception (1): Microsoft.Provisioning.DeploymentTool.Engine.ServerPrerequisiteException
Message: Server MPS02 is offline
at Microsoft.Provisioning.DeploymentTool.Engine.ServerPrerequisites.ValidateServer(String server)
at Microsoft.Provisioning.DeploymentTool.Engine.Entity.AssertTargetPrerequisites(String target)
This same server (MPS02) can be pinged by name, can be managed using Computer Management, and I can list drive contents from the command prompt. So I definately have connectivity. I checked and I verified that the required from the HMC doc:
1) Prepare the Provisioning Engine Servers
2)Configure MPS Security
Any pointed would be great. I did this before and I had my MPS boxes on the same subnet and had no issues. Thanks.

The deployment tool might be using RPC (don't know for a fact, but it might be worth a try).
Check if you have "strict RPC compliance" turned on (look here:
