That version of Erlang should be avoided. Are you able to replicate the
problem with an older or newer version?

There are few ways that partitions can form without a network
interruption. If the erlang cookie is changed on a subset of nodes then
those nodes will leave the cluster. The Erlang distribution layer can
also be stopped administratively on a node via a specific "rabbitmqctl
eval" command. If you are not doing anything like that then the most
likely explanation is a network problem. If you have not tried this yet
you might consider increasing the net_ticktime to improve resilience in
the presence of short outages:
