I tried restarting the rabbitmq service and it failed out with this message.
 (It had been running for some time without problem prior.)  I noticed that
erlang and rabbitmq were both moving along so I updated my ports but no joy.

--rc.con snippet----
# fire up RabbitMQ, la rasion d'etre

#epmd for erlang network processes

I don't comprehend the error message and where I should start looking.
