Changed the folder to c:\mnesia, but strangely enough rabbit decided it would be better to put it in;

c:/Program Files/RabbitMQ/rabbitmq_server-1.7.2/sbin/mnesia/rabbit-mnesia

.. some default value? I don't mind the location as long as it works though! I'm running a test right now to see if I can kill it again. Thanks for the help so far!


PS, for the curious, transferring real time process oil & gas production data to a historian DB. Involving OPC, RabbitMQ and WebsphereMQ. RabbitMQ is my favorite of the involved apps so far ;)
