Ah. I've had problems on CentOS when doing that - it screwed up my permissions completely and I couldn't subsequently run the server. Re-installing and using `/sbin/service start rabbitmq-server` instead did the trick.  You're not on a redhat variant are you?

That could cause a number of problems, especially if nodes are clustered, there is a netsplit and chef restarts them in the wrong order - though they should just fail to start, rather than melt down your data centre. :)

Cool thanks. I'll spend some time looking through those.

Ah ok, that's probably nothing to worry about, though it may help with diagnosis.

Ok sure - I'll filter those out. :)
