Hi Matthias,

I've have the cluster setup on auto-configuration, all 3 nodes were up & 
running at the time I brought down the first node.

rabbitmqctl status
Status of node rabbit at nygstsappu1 ...

                        {sasl,"SASL  CXC 138 11","2.1.6"},
                        {stdlib,"ERTS  CXC 138 10","1.16.2"},
                        {kernel,"ERTS  CXC 138 10","2.13.2"}]},
 {nodes,[rabbit at nygstsappu1,rabbit at nygstsappu2,rabbit at nygstsappd1]},
{running_nodes,[rabbit at nygstsappd1,rabbit at nygstsappu1,rabbit at nygstsappu2]}]

Can you post a transcript of the commands for starting the nodes, 
setting up the cluster, stopping the node, and then restarting it?

Generally, restarting a single node should work w/o any problems, so I 
suspect there is some peculiarity about your cluster setup or the way 
you restart the nodes. The transcript should make it obvious if that is 
the case.

When shutting down and restarting *multiple* nodes, the order can be 
important, depending on how exactly the cluster was configured.
