Before you jump in, remember, to be successful in any job, you need supportive colleagues. The last thing you need is to have the person who didn’t get promoted sabotaging you.
One step people often miss in a new job is engaging the people who were passed over. Rather than dance around it, deal with it directly. Tell them, I know you wanted this job, I’m sure it was a tough decision. I’d like to be able to count on your support.
