Problem: When you first try to
start the vFabric RabbitMQ server on RHEL after installing it, you
immediately get an error that the startup
FAILED, and you see
the following in the
=ERROR REPORT==== 6-Apr-2012::16:08:17 === failed to start TCP Listener on [::]:5672 - eaddrinuse (address already in use)
Solution: An existing process (such as Apache Qpid) that is running and listening on port 5672, which is the default AMQP port. You must stop this process before you can start vFabric RabbitMQ.
For example, if Apache Qpid is running, you can stop it and make sure it does not restart by default:
prompt$ sudo /sbin/service qpidd stop & chkconfig --del qpidd
Check with your system administrator for the specific steps that you should perform on your particular environment.
