    jmx rmi connection refused

    keiji13 Newbie



      I have a question.

      I'm migrating older applications to JBoss AS 7, and all of them are using jmx rmi.

      I read that in JBoss AS 7, jmx rmi is not used anymore, but instead makes use of remoting-jmx.

      Is there any way to make jmx rmi work for JBoss AS 7?


      Whenever I run the application that uses jmx rmi, I always get this error:


      ERROR [JMXUtil] - <Exception encountered in connect()!>

      java.io.IOException: Failed to retrieve RMIServer stub: javax.naming.ServiceUnavailableException [Root exception is java.rmi.ConnectException: Connection refused to host:; nested exception is:

              java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused]

            To connect to JBoss using JConsole(instead of jmx-console), use the script provided in $JBOSS_HOME/bin/jconsole.sh


             Do the following:


                1.Start the JBoss server with the bindaddress e.g ./standalone.sh -c standalone-full.xml -bmanagement x.x.x.x


                2. Run script $JBOSS_HOME/bin/jconsole.sh


                3. Set the remote connection URL as
