In general, please don't think of clustering as trying to provide HA.
Clustering is solely about scalability.

For HA, the only easy thing that currently exists is active/passive
which is documented at http://rabbitmq.com/pacemaker.html

In that guide, it does go so far as to explain how you can have a
cluster of nodes, in which each node is actually an active/passive HA
pair, and thus achieve both the scalability of clustering, with HA.
