I am experimenting with Hyperic for the first time. I have a basic server & agent setup and working on a Redhat Linux box. But when the autodiscoverer is running for JBoss 4.2 I get the exceptions at the end of this message.

I configured the jboss.installpath setting in the And when I start the agent with DEBUG level logging I see the various JBoss jars being included from my configured path. But I can not autodiscover JBoss, I continue to get the same exceptions. Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated...

Place the jbossall-client.jar from JBoss in the classpath of Hyperic Agent i.e. (in the relevant lib of Hyperice Agent).

Also check..

The problem can be due to the Hyperic-Agent couln't catch the JBoss-Server because the used backslashes instead of ordinary slashes.

jboss.installpath=e:\jboss-4.2.1.GA -> NOT OK

jboss.installpath=e:/jboss-4.2.1.GA -> OK
