Hi Experts

I have installed RabbitMQ 2.7.1 on EC2 (host name is ec2test2) and
server getting started without any issue.

AMQP 0-9-1 / 0-9 / 0-8

node           : rabbit at ec2test2
app descriptor : /app/rabbitmq_server-2.7.1/sbin/../ebin/rabbit.app
home dir       : /root
config file(s) : (none)
cookie hash    : 4lZvwoYL5ZJbkEiBx9CgDA==
log            : /var/log/rabbitmq/rabbit at ec2test2.log
sasl log       : /var/log/rabbitmq/rabbit at ec2test2-sasl.log
database dir   : /app/rabbitmq-config/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia/
rabbit at ec2test2
erlang version : 5.9

But when I try to use rabbitmqctl, I am getting the below error.

ec2test2:/app/rabbitmq/sbin # sh rabbitmqctl
{error_logger,{{2012,2,27},{2,55,8}},"Can't set long node name!
\nPlease check your configuration\n",[]}

Host name is correctly configured and it displays:
ec2test2:/app/rabbitmq/sbin # hostname
ec2test2:/app/rabbitmq/sbin #

Could someone please explain this erroneous behavior?
