Hi Kamil. There is a bug in 3.3.3 causing the the rabbitmq-server script 
to terminate early if you have inet_dist_listen_min / 
inet_dist_listen_max defined in your rabbitmq.config. This will be fixed 
in 3.3.4 but for the time being you can remove the "-e" from the first 
line of /usr/lib/rabbitmq/lib/rabbitmq_server-3.3.3/sbin/rabbitmq-server 
or switch to using RABBITMQ_DIST_PORT instead.

Cheers, Simon
