Cause

The Mac can not connect to the MDM server FQDN and port specified in the MDM Link.

Resolution

Please configure the proper MDM server FQDN and port in the MDM Link.

Make sure that FQDN can be resolved by Macs when connecting externally and connections over that port are allowed by the firewall.
