JMeter : Response Path

I am new to JMeter, and I am trying to configure my application in it to do load testing.

I am using HTTP proxy server for recording the actions and the recording of information looks ok.

When I try to run it using the JMeter, one of the sampler fails because it doesnt get redirected to the correct path.

For Example:
The webserver name : xyz.x
http request path : /abc/def/ghi

On running the test plan, In the request, I see the request sent using GET as http://xyz.x/abc/def/ghi

but it fails giving a 404 not found error trying to access only http://xyz.x/ghi. (the /abc/def/ part is missing in the responce.)

Can someone please help?

Make sure you have "follow redirects" checked in your HTTP Request definition or in your HTTP Request Defaults.

That has been enough to work for me.
