[rabbitmq-discuss] active/active message persistence problem

What order are you restarting the nodes? Any rabbitmq server that
connects to a cluster will start its queue fresh and begin replicating
from the master. You should wait and make sure that all the queues are
synchronized before you shut down the master, or new master. Old
messages are not read from nodes that connect to the cluster because
the assumption is that the queue will go to 0 soon and then the old
messages will not matter so only the new messages will be important.
Also, you should make sure that the "x-ha-policy" is set to "all" or
to the "nodes" that you would like the queue to be mirrored to.
