I get the error :
The server instance specified was not found. Please specify the server's address and port.
when i'm trying to add a customer sharepoint site.
If I write http://<external_ip>:8080 instead it says :
The operation has timed-out.
I use Sharepoint Service 2 with SP1.
I followed the Consolidated HMC 3.5 documentation.
Any ideas what the problem could be?

I had the exact same thing last week. The way I resolved it was to uninstall the sharepoint services, remove the config database from the MPSSQL01, and remove any webapppool from IIS, basically everything.
Go back through the same installation steps as you did earlier. My suspicion lies in the fact that you forgot the -hh.
stsadm.exe -o setconfigdb -ds MPSSQL -dn sts_HostedSharepoint_config –hh
This is the only thing that I can think of when I setup sharepoint. Once I installed it again, everything worked fine. Also make sure that you have unique path for your sharepoint (DSH.11 step 10).
