If you cannot reset the password using console commands, another solution is to:

  1. Uninstall CES
  2. In the CES installation folder, locate the "Third-Party" subfolder and delete the "erlang.cookie" file and the "RabbitMQ for Coveo" folder
  3. Install CES

NOTE: This will delete all other RabbitMQ settings.

Thanks I had to reinstall CES and had to delete the CES7 folder as well before the reinstall.
