Where is the default location of the erlang.cookie file?

Can someone help me with information, regarding the default location of the erlang.cookie file?

Where should I look for it?

Thanks in advance

  • Dear Ivan,

    Thank you for raising this question on the RWS Community.

    According to the https://www.rabbitmq.com/clustering.html, and depending of the Erlang version used, the .erlang.cookie file should be available here:

    - with Erlang versions starting with 20.2, the cookie file locations are:

    • %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\.erlang.cookie (usually C:\Users\%USERNAME%\.erlang.cookie for user %USERNAME%) if both the HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH environment variables are set
    • %USERPROFILE%\.erlang.cookie (usually C:\Users\%USERNAME%\.erlang.cookie) if HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH are not both set
    • For the RabbitMQ Windows service - %USERPROFILE%\.erlang.cookie (usually C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile)

    - with Erlang versions prior to 20.2, the cookie file locations are:

    • %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\.erlang.cookie (usually C:\Users\%USERNAME%\.erlang.cookie for user %USERNAME%) if both the HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH environment variables are set
    • %USERPROFILE%\.erlang.cookie (usually C:\Users\%USERNAME%\.erlang.cookie) if HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH are not both set
    • For the RabbitMQ Windows service - %WINDIR%\.erlang.cookie (usually C:\Windows\.erlang.cookie

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards
