[rabbitmq-discuss] Portability of the RabbitMQ database

I am playing over with replication and fail-over scenarios with RabbitMQ. So
I copied over the database directory
of production RabbitMQ server to a different machine and tried to restart
the RabbitMQ server with the database
of the production server. The production machine is running Linux and the
destination machines are Linux + MacOSX.

The startup fails on both server...isn't the database portable across
different machine?
Or is there some other way for moving a production database directory from
one server to another?
