I’m using jmeter 2.3.4 distribution in my ubuntu 9.10, tried running the jmeter-server but encountered the following error:

Server failed to start: java.rmi.RemoteException: Cannot start. <computer_name> is a loopback address.


* Go to /etc folder

* Edit hosts file by changing to your absolute IP address

Then run your jmeter-server again, to verify, you should be able to see the following logs in jmeter-server.log file

INFO┬á – jmeter.engine.RemoteJMeterEngineImpl: Starting backing engine on 1099

Now you’re ready to start your distributed testing with Jmeter ­čśÇ
