ejabberdctl status
RPC failed on the node ejabberd@localhost: nodedown

This occurred when using a live cd in a virtual player under bridge mode. The app loads after a virtual player reboot, but restarting the service within ssh returned the error. So I did a hard reboot on the host machine which resolve the issue.

You will also need to make sure the host name is correct in the ejabberd cfg file.
