I'm still sleuthing around to figure out the crash. The box had been
restarted due to connection issues and hangs in that stage during

for now I deleted the data files under
/var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia/rabbit at brokerm01 and it starts up fine
(albiet with any unprocessed messages dropped). Still looking through
the logs to see what happened... is there any place that records
memory high watermark bypasses?

Luckily this was on a test server. :)
