I assume you're using the latest from default (or the new persister),
and not v1.7.0.

I've just spotted a bug in the way we process the env vars which I'll
fix either later today or tomorrow. I don't think this bug existed in
1.7.0. You should be able to set NODENAME and NODE_IP_ADDRESS in
/etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.conf or in the env, but I can see that that's
currently broken.

However, provided you're using some version later than v1.7.0, you can
configure this in /etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.config with something like:

[{rabbit, [{tcp_listeners, [{"", 5672}]}]}].

This is currently working (in fact, it was the changes to support this
that have broken the env var settings. Sigh).
