HI Folks,

My newbie status is visible in this problem.
I'm wanting to use Alice/Wonderland to monitor my RabbitMQ instance.
Unfortunately, my hostname at the time if RabbitMQ install was
'vm-peter-u804B'  -- no domain
So, I changed the system hostname to 'vm-peter-u804B.peter' (/etc/hosts and
/etc/hostname).  hostname and hostname -s show 'vm-peter-u804B.peter' and
I have rebooted several times.

Now rabbit fails to start with /var/log/rabbitmq/startup_log :

node          : rabbit at vm-peter-u804B
app descriptor:
home dir      : /var/lib/rabbitmq
cookie hash   : x3xctmeBS7wtsHr18+Og1w==
log           : /var/log/rabbitmq/rabbit.log
sasl log      : /var/log/rabbitmq/rabbit-sasl.log
database dir  : /var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia/rabbit

starting database             ...timeout
{"init terminating in

Could anyone shed light on how to make Rabbit/Mnesia happy again?
