[rabbitmq-discuss] Repairing a a crashed cluster

Hi everyone,

I have a RabbitMQ cluster with two disk nodes.

Last night something happened to the network and both RabbitMQ servers

node1 reports the following:

> ===========
> Timeout contacting cluster nodes: [rabbit at node2].

node2 reports the reciprocal

> ===========
> Timeout contacting cluster nodes: [rabbit at node1].

My instinct, for the sake of uptime, is to say: "okay, forget node2, lets
break the cluster and bring node1 online".

My problem is that according to the docs I need to issue a "rabbitmqctl
force_reset", which I can't do unless the server is running.

I tried starting it using "rabbitmq-server -detached" but the server just
exited after loading plugins.

Does anyone know the right course of action in this scenario?

Many Thanks!
