Erlang uses cookies to control which nodes are allowed to connect to 
each other. The cookie file lives in the user's home directory in the 
file .erlang.cookie.

Since in your setup the rabbitmqctl command is run by a different user 
than the RabbitMQ server, you need to either make the contents of the 
.erlang.cookie files the same or use the -setcookie <cookie> parameter 
to erl.exe to set the cookie explicitly.
