Well, if your hosts were *actually* called host1 and host2 then the 
quotes would have been unnecessary. But since they are called 
ey04-s00405 and ey04-s00406 the quotes are needed due to the '-' in the 
node name.

It looks like your two nodes were once independent rabbit nodes. Please 
reset them, as documented in
