Description Ian McLeod 2014-01-29 02:33:59 UTC
Description of problem:

I originally encountered this issue when installing OpenStack via devstack but have since been able to reproduce it by simply executing commands inside of a fresh F20 install.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Occurs regularly but not 100% of the time

Steps to Reproduce:

/sbin/service rabbitmq-server stop
/sbin/service rabbitmq-server start
rabbitmqctl change_password guest newpassword

Actual results:

About half the time, on a freshly installed F20, this will fail, claiming the node cannot be contacted.  A typical error message:

[root@cob-dell5 ~]# rabbitmqctl change_password guest ozrootpw
Changing password for user "guest" ...
Error: unable to connect to node 'rabbit@cob-dell5': nodedown


nodes in question: ['rabbit@cob-dell5']

hosts, their running nodes and ports:
- cob-dell5: [{rabbitmqctl2648,48609}]

current node details:
- node name: 'rabbitmqctl2648@cob-dell5'
- home dir: /var/lib/rabbitmq
- cookie hash: 8DNoVu56TqDYWypW7YXDJw==

Expected results:

Changing password for user "guest" ...

Comment 2 Ian McLeod 2014-02-27 22:51:21 UTC
Note to anyone following.  The devstack installer has a commit that attempts to workaround this issue by retrying the rabbitmq restart:


Still, it would be nice to sort this out on the rabbitmq side eventually.
