Thanks for the detailed report. I don't think this is quite the same 
problem as other folks have seen, mainly because of this:

...which I don't recall anybody reporting before.

As you observed, rabbitmq is indeed happily running. However, for some 
reason the launcher program failed to communicate with it and obtain 
(and record) its process id. The error

> [root at db1 init.d]# ./rabbitmq-server status
> Status of all running nodes...
> Error: no_nodes_running

is a consequence of that.

What happens when you run
   rabbitmqctl status
(which should live in /usr/sbin, or /sbin or some such place - do *not* 
run the one in /usr/lib64/rabbitmq/bin/)?
