Use the workaround if this is not the case.

    1. SSH into the Workspace ONE Access appliance as the root user.
    2. Stop the RabbitMQ service: systemctl stop rabbitmq-server.service
    3. Run the following commands:
        rm -f /root/.erlang.cookie
        In -s /var/lib/rabbitmq/.erlang.cookie /root/.erlang.cookie
    4. Start the RabbitMQ service:
        systemctl start rabbitmq-server.service
    5. To verify that RabbitMQ is running, type
        systemctl status rabbitmq-server.service
    6. To verify that RabbitMQ queues are created, type
