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 127.0.0.1 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 – jmeter.engine.RemoteJMeterEngineImpl: Starting backing engine on 1099
Now you’re ready to start your distributed testing with Jmeter 😀
