Default No active checks on server

Hi Guys

I have setup a linux server and server and client. on both server and agant a get error message not found:

cat /tmp/zabbix_server.log
25119:20100501:171910.452 Sending list of active checks to [127.0.0.1] failed: host [test2.local] not found

cat /tmp/zabbix_agentd.log
32674:20100501:172110.575 No active checks on server: host [test2.local] not found

configuration detail:
cat /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf
DBName=zabbix
DBUser=root
DBPassword=password

cat /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agent.conf
Server=127.0.0.1
Hostname=localhost

I even disabled firewall just in case, still i get same error, any idea why this happens?

You need to make the Hostname= field the same name as you have for that server in the Zabbix front end. Upper/lower case must also match. This is unique to active agent items.

Restart the agent after any changes.

I have install zabbix_agent on zabbix_server, I can connect to the zabbox server from the server itself, but can't connect from other machine.

what are the steps of adding new client, I did following:
1- configure /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agent..conf, add following:

Server=192.168.1.5
Hostname=zabbix_server (server name)
LogFile=/tmp/zabbix_agentd.log

Start service
zabbix_agentd

DO I need to do any configuration on Zabbix Server
