This error does usually indicate that rabbitmq-server is already running
(more precisely, it means that another Erlang node with the same name is
already running).  Are you sure that there are no other running
instances?  Check the output of "ps ax" for "beam" processes.

If you are absolutely sure it is not running, kill the epmd process, and
then try starting it again.
