If RabbitMQ is deployed on a standalone machine or in a high availability configuration with multiple nodes, you must use an adapted procedure to upgrade RabbitMQ to version 3.9.13 or later, as applicable.
Before you begin
To see how .erlang cookie paths are constructed, see the RabbitMQ Clustering Guide
Copy the Genetec Mission Control™ 18.104.22.168 installation package to all RabbitMQ servers.
What you should know
- Stop the RabbitMQ service.
Backup the .erlang.cookie file to a temporary storage
Usual file path for the .erlang.cookie is C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService.
Paste the .erlang.cookie file from the temporary storage location
to the following folders:
NOTE: If an .erlang.cookie file exists in the destination folder, overwrite it with the copied file.
- If using your own certificates in C:\Program Files (x86)\Genetec\RabbitMQ, you must create a backup for them as well.
- Use the advanced setup in the Genetec Mission Control™ 22.214.171.124 installation wizard to only upgrade RabbitMQ.
- Restart the RabbitMQ service.
