[rabbitmq-discuss] moving mnesia between machines.

I'm running rabbitmq on an ec2 instance with nmesia on amazon's
persistent block storage so when I shut the machine down and start
another the queues, etc are persisted.

However, during testing, when I mount the partition on the new machine
rabbitmq won't start up; I get a timeout error (from rabbit-sasl.log):

starting database             ...timeout
{"init terminating in

When I mount the partition on the original machine rabbitmq starts up

Is it possible to move the database across machines like this or will I
need to dump it and reload?
