The short answer to your question is that this is due to the cookie
mechanism in Erlang.

To fix this, you can can use the -setcookie argument when starting
Erlang (make sure that 2 nodes are using the same cookie) or create a
.erlang.cookie containing the plain text of a cookie in the home
directory of the user starting rabbit.

Furthermore, the log shows that the server did actually start, and so
you might just skip the rabbitmqctl script and start using a client to
test the connectivity of the broker.

I'm a bit short of time to look into what adjustments you had to make
to get things going, so I've just tried to give you some information
to get yourself going as quickly as possible.
