Apache, mod_jk not serving tomcat

I was trying to set up Apache mod_jk to serve up my jboss traffic without loadbalancing and I was running into the errors below. My machine is running Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 with Apache2.

The solution was to specifically identify the host machine in the workers.properties file.


[root@]# cat /etc/httpd/conf/workers.properties
# Define list of workers that will be used
# for mapping requests
worker.list=jbossworker,status

# Define jbossworker
worker.jbossworker.port=8009
worker.jbossworker.host=jboss1.example.com
worker.jbossworker.type=ajp13

# Status worker for managing load balancer
worker.status.type=status
I hope that helps some people.
