"Cannot perform operation, connection is closed" with Open MQ 4.4

I am using Sun MQ 4.4 with Glassfish 2.1.1 on Red Hat 5.7.

I am able to install glassfish cluster and all the instances are running fine. But, when I try to send a message to a topic, I get following exception

javax.jms.IllegalStateException: [C4062]: Cannot perform operation, connection is closed.
at com.sun.messaging.jmq.jmsclient.ConnectionImpl.checkConnectionState(
at com.sun.messaging.jmq.jmsclient.XAConnectionImpl.createSession(
at com.sun.messaging.jms.ra.ConnectionAdapter.createSession(


Following is part of the stateless EJB where I am creating the session.
private void init() {
if (connectionFactory == null) {
if (log.isTraceEnabled()) log.trace("Connection factory not set. Retrieving from server context.");
InitialContext ic = new InitialContext();
connectionFactory = (ConnectionFactory) ic.lookup("jms/testConnectionFactory");

if (log.isTraceEnabled()) log.trace("Creating JMS connection.");
connection = connectionFactory.createConnection();

public void send(){
Session session = null;
session = connection.createSession(true, Session.SESSION_TRANSACTED);

I am trying to install these on a couple of new machines. Same application works on other machines so I am guessing this is a configuartion issue somewhere on these servers.

My question is what would be a good way to find the cause of this failure.

I have turned on log level to finest for ejb-container, jms, RA through glassfish Admin console, but no useful information.

Also, I don't have the name of the servers in DNS yet. I am using IP address for specifying instances.

Any suggestions ?
