This is the configuration of shovel plugin I wish to run on Rabbitmq 2.8.7.
The ip address of the machine that declares the shovel plugin is
{kernel, [{inet_dist_listen_min, 4001}, {inet_dist_listen_max, 4004}]},
  [ {shovels, [ {MQ_shovel,
                 [ { sources,
                      [{broker, "amqp://"}

                [ {broker, "amqp://"}



As soon as I try to start the server after configuration, I get this error
in logs:
{"could not start kernel pid",application_controller,"error in config file
\"/etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.config\" (1): bad term"}
