Did you instead see an entry stating

config file(s) : (none)

To track down the problem, locate the 'rabbitmq-server' script in your 
rabbit installation. It should be in the 'scripts' sub-directory of 
wherever rabbit gets installed, and look like 
Edit the RABBITMQ_CONFIG_ARG line (at 
to hardcode the value to

RABBITMQ_CONFIG_ARG="-config /etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq"

and restart the broker. This *should* either pick up your config file or 
complain in the startup log.
