Optional: Deleting the RabbitMQ guest user account

By default, RabbitMQ distributions include the guest user account. To prevent security issues, Zenoss recommends deleting the account.

  1. Log in to the Control Center master host as a user with serviced CLI privileges.
  2. Attach to the RabbitMQ container.

    serviced service attach rabbitmq
  3. Delete the guest user account.

    rabbitmqctl delete_user guest
  4. Exit the container session.

  5. Restart the RabbitMQ service.

    serviced service restart rabbitmq
