I am trying to setup mcollective using RabbitMQ. Per instruction, I enabled rabbit_stomp plugin and then set the port to 6163:

[ {rabbit_stomp, [{tcp_listeners, [{"",6163}]} ]} ].

However, even after a restart, it does not seem to want to set it to that port.

tcp        0      0     *                   LISTEN      13439/beam.smp      
tcp        0      0 :::5672                     :::*                        LISTEN      13439/beam.smp      
tcp        0      0 :::61613                    :::*                        LISTEN      13439/beam.smp 

in looking through the web, the above code seems to be the appropriate step, so what I am I missing.

I am running the following:

Nevermind. I should learn to read the documentation more closely:

I mis-spelled rabbitmq_stomp. Corrected with:

  {rabbitmq_stomp, [{tcp_listeners, [{"", 6163},
                                     {"::1",       6163}]}]}

Interestingly enough, the Pro Puppet book had it also as rabbit_stomp. I am not sure if it is an update to the plugin after the book was published or an error with the book itself.

I also found the misspelled error in the Pro Puppet book. Changed to rabbitmq_stomp, restart the rabbitmq-server, but it still listen to 61613 port, by the default (not 6163). To be more sure, I also set the CONFIG_FILE=/etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.config in the rabbitmq-env.conf, but it sounds like the rabbitmq-server doesn't read the config file. Do you have any other ideas? –  quanta May 8 '12 at 4:46
Try kill off the erlang process after your stop rabbit. For some reason, that still hangs around even though you stop the services. –  Rilindo May 9 '12 at 0:58
