Hi Emile,

Thanks for your response.

I got your point. Just as an additional confirmation, RabbitMQ behavior would not change in any sense other than the start up behavior you have Indicated below (For either Clustering, Mirroring, Performance, Memory) whether I Install tar version or RPM version? Correct?

Yes, you can perform any operation that requires root privileges as long
as you have the appropriate sudo permission - see the "sudoers" and
"sudo" man pages.

Some RPM packages are relocatable and can be installed with an arbitrary
prefix. The RabbitMQ RPM package is not relocatable and Debian packages
are not relocatable in general.

As you suggest in your original email, it is possible to install the
Generic Unix binary package in the location of your choosing. This
method will not install an init.d script. If you are not root and don't
have sudo permission then this is your only option, but keep in mind
that you will need to start RabbitMQ after each reboot without an init.d
