[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ 2.5.0 cluster cannot start

What do the other two nodes say on 'rabbitmqclt cluster_status'? 
Also keep tailing the other's logfiles, they might tell you more...

Also, from which previous version were you upgrading?
I just had an unfortunate behaviour from 2.1.1 -> 2.5.0, mnesia got screwed up and I had to reinstall the whole cluster

To your question about Erlang, I have a cluster with R12B and R13B04.
(please not that all nodes must/should be the same rabbit version)

Here's the transcript of trying to do that by hand (rabbitmq is
running on beta without any config-file cluster config, and rabbit is
running clustered on the other two machines):

kvm-beta ~ # rabbitmqctl cluster_status
Cluster status of node 'rabbit at kvm-beta' ...
[{nodes,[{disc,['rabbit at kvm-beta']}]},{running_nodes,['rabbit at kvm-beta']}]
kvm-beta ~ # rabbitmqctl stop_app
Stopping node 'rabbit at kvm-beta' ...
kvm-beta ~ # rabbitmqctl reset
Resetting node 'rabbit at kvm-beta' ...
kvm-beta ~ # rabbitmqctl cluster rabbit at kvm-alpha
Clustering node 'rabbit at kvm-beta' with ['rabbit at kvm-alpha'] ...
Error: {unable_to_join_cluster,
           ['rabbit at kvm-alpha'],
                             ['rabbit at kvm-gamma','rabbit at kvm-alpha'],
                             {{1308,347724,86957},'rabbit at kvm-alpha'},
                              {'rabbit at kvm-gamma',{1308,347733,438674}}}}]},

If I try to join with kvm-gamma instead, it gives me the same errors.  Very odd.
