Clustering RabbitMQ Windows

I recently had to set up a RabbitMQ cluster in windows on AWS , these are just some notes so I can remember what I did. Hopefully it might help others too.

  • Open ports on the machines for the cluster
  • Set the port for the server.bat and service.bat (can be found in C:\Program Files (x86)\RabbitMQ Server\rabbitmq_server-{VERSION})
  • Set the .erlang.cookie file to be the same value on all machines (Can be found in c:/windows and c:/user/{USER})
  • Use the following commands to set up the cluster.

And that should do it.

I should really have written this down when I set it up and not 2 months later.
