  I got this working it's just that my firewall rules on node A blocked
access !
  Basically one need to open TCP port 5672 on the machine running the
QPid broker (and possibly 5671 when SSL auth is to be used once
  Also the simplest is to edit /etc/qpidd.conf on the broker node and
add :


then restart the broker with "/etc/init.d/qpidd restart"
and on all the monitored nodes edit /etc/sysconfig/libvirt-qpid and
add :


and also restart the libvirt-qpid service on them.
Assuming the services gets started automatically all the nodes will
connect automatically to the broker upon reboot without manual tuning.

   very cool !

I'm just wondering if there is any DNS customization trick which would
allow the qpid client to automatically find the broker based on the DNS
settings (things like _qpid._tcp SRV entries in the local domain). That
would avoid the configuration on each monitored node.
