Thanks Emile,

No luck yet.

Here are my RABBITMQ_* properties after your suggestion about node name:

========= env ===============
set DIST=%~p0\..\..\..\..

cd "%DIST%"
set DIST=%CD%

set RSMQ_BASE=%DIST%\rabbitmq
set RABBITMQ_CONFIG_FILE=%RSMQ_BASE%\config\rabbitmq
set RABBITMQ_ENABLED_PLUGINS_FILE=%RSMQ_BASE%\config\enabled_plugins
set RABBITMQ_COOKIE=mycookie
set RABBITMQ_NODENAME=rabbit at 10-20-2-52

========= rabbitctl.bat file content ===========
rabbitmqctl.bat has the following at the end:

"!ERLANG_HOME!\bin\erl.exe" -pa "!TDP0!..\ebin" -noinput -hidden
!RABBITMQ_CTL_ERL_ARGS! -name rabbitmqctl!RANDOM!!TIME:~9! -s
rabbit_control_main -nodename !RABBITMQ_NODENAME! -extra !STAR!

The windows service works just fine and I can go to the admin console at <>

FYI, I do not have any entry in the hosts file.

Thanks for the help.

Bipul Dutta.
