Multi Server Configuration

Now that I've put my single server setup through the paces with Swift (and the default configurations), and its time to add another. The new server is now hosting account, container, and object services - configured identically to the first. I've added the new IP address and devices to the ring via swift-ring-builder [builder file] add ... and rebalanced on the original server with (seemingly) no errors.

Of course the deployment guide says that the configuration defaults are not tuned for multiple servers and some cloud operations are now failing (containers can't be found or listed) . Do you guys have a quick summary or simple run down of what should be changed configuration-wise to account for additional servers? I'd like to get them talking but no intuitive options really stand out.
