Changing the RabbitMQ default guest account password.

Has anyone had any success with changing the default RabbitMQ account password on the Security Analytics Server/Broker?

 

I have attempted to change it from "guest"/"guest" with the following command on all systems:

rabbitmqctl change_password guest newpassword

 

Also edited the "guest" password in the following files:

/opt/sms/conf/brokerConfiguration.json

/opt/sms/conf/carlos.transport.amqp.rmqconfig.json

/opt/im/conf/integrationMessageBusConfig.json

/opt/im/conf/alertMessageBusConfig.json

/opt/im/conf/carlos.transport.amqp.rmqconfig.json


Restarted all services but still am not able to figure out why I am getting the following error in the log file /var/log/rabbitmq/sa@localhost.log:

=ERROR REPORT==== 16-Feb-2015::19:04:29 ===

closing AMQP connection <0.1930.0> (127.0.0.1:42590 -> 127.0.0.1:5672):

{handshake_error,starting,0,

                 {amqp_error,access_refused,

                             "PLAIN login refused: user 'guest' - invalid credentials",

                             'connection.start_ok'}}

 

Not sure where else this guest password could be hiding as its either a default credential that is not apart of the configurations or hard coded somewhere in the system.
