comment Point *.local to 127.0.0.1 within network
.local is bad because it is used by a widely deployed protocol. If you want a local domain that does not exist outside your organization then you must choose something that does not collide with global top level domains. It needs to have at least 4 letters, and preferably is the kind of thing that would not be desirable to the crop of new registrars opening up. .FSXN would work too as would .OUROWN. It boils down to company policy. If the company is fine with priv.mycompany.com thats great. If not, choose wisely.

On a small server like that you really should be using SQLITE instead.

comment “ipv6 equivalent” of 192.168.x.x (configuring a static ipv6 address)
Really? I've noticed that some of our production Linux servers are actually using IPv6 to communicate internally even though nobody explicitly made that decision and told them to do it. It happened as a side effect of the default install turning on IPv6 and certain domain names being automatically populated with IPv6 addresses in /etc/hosts. IPv6 is pretty ubiquitious, it works and it is only at the Internet scale that there are issues with turning it on.

comment RabbitMQ: erl not found
Actually, you should NEVER prefer package installations over compile it yourself for tools which are core to your business. The upstream versions are always much more up to date, and if they do not distribute an RPM or DEB version, then build it yourself is better. In particular RabbitMQ has made great advances in the last couple of years and all Linux distros have lagged far behind because they don't consider RabbitMQ to be that important.

comment How do I make RabbitMQ listen only to localhost?
Also, the EPMD port is protected with cookies so nobody can connect unless they know your RabbitMQ server cookie. You would only give that cookie to other members of a RabbitMQ cluster. Same principle as an API key.
