Take a look at https://github.com/rabbitmq/rabbitmq-server/blob/master/docs/rabbitmq.config.example#L199.

Setting the correct cookie is a step that must be undertaken by a server/host administrator. RabbitMQ in fact does nothing with regards the erlang cookie file. The erlang runtime system looks for this in the home directory of the user that starts the emulator, and the rabbit startup scripts typically run as the `rabbitmq` user.
