Are you running ejabberdctl as the same user who is running ejabberd?  ISTR
that I got the same error when the Erlang Cookie for ejabberdctl didn't
match that for ejabberd.

I got around this by copying the file .erlang.cookie from /root into
/etc/ejabberd, making it readable only by the user who runs ejabberd and
ejabberdctl (user ejabberd in my case) and modifying my ejabberd start
script to read the cookie value from there using the -setcookie option.
