Do you need distributed ejabberd ?
If 'no' then change HOST to just kermit. e.g.


All subsequent operations should just use 'kermit'. e.g.

    /opt/ejabberd/bin/ejabberdctl register admin kermit xxxxxx

If 'yes' then leave HOST as "kermit.mercateo.lan". Instead look into the 
start script (or do a grep) and change the '-sname' option to '-name'
