You defined the mod_cluster manager at "/mod_cluster_manager", yet you tried to access "http://hammond/mod_cluster-manager". (i.e. "-" vs "_").
That would explain the 404.
Thanks Paul! That did explain the 404. But there seems to be a disconnect between the node and the mod_cluster manager. When accessing the url from the browser, the status looks fine, but there is no node information:
start of "httpd.conf" configuration
Protocol supported: http AJP https
Server: hammond.navicure.com VirtualHost: 192.168.227.15:80 Advertising on Group 220.127.116.11 Port 23364 for http://192.168.227.15:80 every 5 seconds
end of "httpd.conf" configuration
I started JBoss with -u 18.104.22.168, and it should use the default port of 23364. But when I run the Quick Start client (with the target 192.168.227.15:80), the request fails. Apache is trying to service the request instead of forwarding it to the JBoss node:
[Wed Jan 05 10:23:56 2011] [error] [client 192.168.9.5] File does not exist: /opt/jboss/httpd/htdocs/htdocs/load-demo
When I change the target port on the client to 8080, the app server handles the request as expected.

I've been over the configuration a number of times, not to say I haven't missed something. Any idea what I am missing any tips for troubleshooting?

So, you're using advertise to broadcast your load balancer's existence to the EAP nodes. Are you certain that you have mod_cluster.sar deployed on your EAP nodes? Can you make sure that advertise is enabled on the EAP nodes themselves (look for the advertise property in the ModClusterConfig bean within mod_cluster.sar/META-INF/mod_cluster-jboss-beans.xml)? [Forgive me, but I gotta ask the dumb questions first...]
Does the mod_cluster.sar service start successfully? If you enable DEBUG logging for "org.jboss.modcluster", do you see any log messages indicating the receipt of the advertise multicast messages from the load balancer?
Also, have you tried defining an explicit proxyList for your EAP nodes (as an alternative to advertise)? You can define this either via the proxyList property of the ModClusterConfig bean within mod_cluster.sar/META-INF/mod_cluster-jboss-beans.xml, or via the jboss.mod_cluster.proxyList system property.
Thank you Paul. Everything looked good and I could see that the sar was deployed in the JMX console, but when I enabled debug, I saw nothing. Note that I'd been using the EAP software.
I replaced the eap sar with the open source version and it worked fine with the Quick Start client.My guess is the commercial code works too, but we could not find the documentation for it. It probably needs additional configuration. My mistake was assuming the open source docs would work for it.
N.B. The EAP sar uses 1.0.x of mod_cluster. I doubt that this version is compatible with the 1.1.x version of the httpd modules.
