Rs. 3+ Lakhs Prizes to be WON!!

Brochure: Print & post at your college notice board, or share via eMail, Facebook, Twitter etc.

  1.   *****     Register in the contest      *****     &    IBM UR Facebook
  2.   Part - 1 Problem Statement Document: Errata: Please note that the email ID (studmain@uk.ibm.com) in Page 13 is to be ignored. The right place to discuss your queries in MMC 2013 - India is this forum or IBMUR facebook site. Password Reset request need to be emailed to entindia@in.ibm.com. Mail to the studmain@uk.ibm.com will not be answered.
  3. Part - 2 Problem Statement Document:  Students who have cleared Part - 1 can only attempt Part 2. All students who has submitted Part - 1 will get mail informing them if they have not cleared Part-1 or not. Students who has NOT cleared Part - 1 cannot start Part -2. You can submit Part -1 again and try to clear it.
  4. Part - 3 Problem Statement Document: This is where the Masters identify themselves. If you thought Part - 1 deserved Yellow Highlight and Part - 2 Orange, then Part - 3 surely deserves being highlighted in red. As before, you need to work it out yourself - there will be no hints or spoon-feeding. And there is no Early Bird Prize. You need to be accurate and best. In addition you need to submit a small essay - the essay is used to resolve winners in case of Tie-Breaker. All contestants will know deep in their heart that the winner is "Master" - someone like Kungfu Panda who has "inner peace".

Contestants will need OpenVPN.co​nnection-k​it.zip for PART-3.

Errata (Part-3): Please note that the URL in the last page is not relevant for India. Wish we could have corrected the PDF.

       Final Result: The prize distribution ceremony will be held at Fortune Hotel, Kolkata on 1st Feb 2013. Congrats to all winners and participants.

 

Part - 1 & Part - 2 early bird winners will get flipkart vouchers via email. Part-3 winners will get their prizes in the ceremony.

Master the Mainframe 2013, India Prizes

    I successfully completed the Part 1 of Master the Mainframe contest. On execution I got 485 fun points and the result shows Successful. I have also transmitted the result dataset. It shows transmission complete on execution of xmit command.  But still I haven't received any mail regarding the Part 1 completion. What should I do regarding this?

    All Part-1 Success and Failure participants have got mail. As you have not got email on success or failure, your submission is not yet evaluated.

    You can start on Part-2 but you can submit only post Part-1 success email.

    I think there's a problem associated authorization.We are not authorized to access the Websphere MQ queue manager as "Abra73" pointed out. Please look into it.

     | CSQO014E MQOPEN of SYSTEM.COMMAND.INPUT unsuccessful. Reason code = 2035. |  
     +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+  

    This is the error I get when I try to define a queue in WebSphere MQ. As mentioned earlier in FB IBMUR, if authorization is not an issue, then the only problem seems to be insufficient storage as documented in the 'MQ z/OS messages and codes'. Also the mqrc = 2035 asks to contact MQ data security admin.

    This would be of tremendous help if the admin clarifies a bit on the matter. Thank You.
