The problem is that you are trying to run two brokers with the same node 
name. Use this command to confirm whether rabbit is already running:

rabbitmqctl -n rabbit at sb-node2 status

You need to shut the running broker down before starting a new one. The 
rabbitmqctl tool can be used to do this:

rabbitmqctl -n rabbit at sb-node2 stop

Also see the information in the installation troubleshooting guide:
