Configuration message bus failed to setup RabbitMQ for Orion after installing NPM 2020


I received the message on the screen shot below. Orion configuration wizard failed, configuratrion message bus failed to setup RabbitMQ for Orion.

This is a fresh installation on a new server, I have enabled Messages Queus prior installation. I rebuilt the server and start a new installation but I got the same message.

I followed many articles in Solarwinds support site and THWACK but that didn't help me.

Any additional ideas would be greatly appreciated

You can try to rebuild RabbitMQ manually from here:

Edit: Run these commands in a Command Prompt with Admin  (and also run the Config Wizard with Run as Administrator)

@alamubarak Does the ConfigurationWizard.log located in C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs\Orion provide any more detail for the error?>

Configuration wizard located in D drive 

D:\Program Files\Solarwinds

I installed Orion on drive D

I tried to to gather more info for the error, I followed direction in the link below but couldn't find it

@alamubarak the installation directory is on D but the log files are going to be located in the directory I provided. 

Also the logs for RabbitMQ are located in C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Orion\RabbitMQ\log looking at that log may shed more light as to the failure.

I see access denied to "rabbitmq-service.bat"

I installed Orion with AD admin account and a local admin account.

Could be that the reason for denied access?

@alamubarak I would recommend opening a support ticket if you haven't already, as well as ensure that you run the configuration wizard as admin as @shuth mentioned, run the Orion permissions checker and repair any failures, disable UAC, and ensure that AV exclusions are in place.

Hi @christopher.t.jones123 @shuth 

Thank you so much for your suggestion, I completed the installation successfully, engaged security team and they found that AV was blocking RabbitMQ and other service.
