Thanks Simon. After the rpm upgrade, when we try to start the nodes and
they error out. We also tried killall -u rabbitmq before restart. Issue
doesn't happen always, only once in a while.

After we delete the data folder, rabbitmq starts fine. We would prefer not
to delete the data folder as we need to copy out the queues and users and
restore them.
