We are trying to think of a potential problem in our production enviornment
and looking to see what options do we have. Our current setup is based on 2
nodes in a cluster running v 3.0.1 of rabbitmq.

Potential probelm:
For any reason for e.g upgrade on software or on hardware side or any wiered
reason if we have to bring both the servers down and there would be a chance
of our disk data to be deleted ( unfortunately in real life bad things do
happen). Now is there a way we can export the configuration + backup and
restore it.

Potentail resolution.
Take the backup of dirs (/var/lib/rabbitmq) by shutting the nodes down ( not
accepting any new connections via LB and then stopping rabbitmq).

Is the potential resolution i have stated above is a standard way to go with
Is there any way i can export the message and import the messages( i saw in
admin console that if we go to each queue we can dump the message) ( i have
seen in the management console that we can export/import broker
configuration but it doesn't contain messages)

How should we normally handle backup messages for rabbitmq?
