[rabbitmq-discuss] Federation Over SSL with Intermediate Certificate Authority

What I ended up doing is just specifying the issuing (intermediate) CA's
cert as the "CA" in the rabbitmq.config file and it didn't complain when
bringing the service back online. I am not sure if this is because the
system already trusted the root CA (it was a DigiCert certificate) or what.

I would suggest adding whatever the proper guidance is to the documents -
as I am not sure if what I did is "correct" or not (I think I might have
just gotten lucky).
