AMQ9090E
Client application lacks one or more required IBM MQ AMS capabilities.
Severity
20 : Error
Explanation
IBM MQ AMS detected that an MQ client application connected via channel <insert_3> lacks the required capabilities needed to implement security for policy protected queue <insert_4>. For example the client may be lacking the ability to implement confidentiality policies or symmetric key reuse. The host name is <insert_5>; in some cases the host name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'. Attempts made by the client application to open, put or get messages may fail with MQRC_SECURITY_ERROR (2063).
Response
Either migrate to a newer version of MQ client libraries that do support the security mandated by the policy on the queue. If it is impossible to migrate the client to a suitable level, consider IBM MQ AMS MCA interception to move the protection and unprotection of messages to the server.
AMQ9091E
Key reuse is not valid for policy.
Severity
20 : Error
Explanation

AMS security policy internal error: message could not be protected: <insert_5> error code <insert_3> (<insert_1>) in <insert_4>.
Severity
20 : Error
Explanation
The IBM MQ AMS security policy interceptor could not encrypt a message because the indicated <insert_5> error occurred. This can happen for several reasons, all of which are internal failures: (1) the message is not a valid PKCS#7 message; (2) the sender's certificate does not have the required key usage bit to be able to encrypt the message; (3) the sender's certificate was not recognized as a trusted certificate; (4) receiver is not among the recipients of the message.
Response
Consult the IBM MQ AMS information in the Knowledge Center for the explanation of the reason code and take corrective action. If the problem persists, contact your IBM service representative.
AMQ9095E
AMS security policy internal error: message could not be unprotected: <insert_5> error code <insert_3> (<insert_1>) in <insert_4>.
Severity
20 : Error
Explanation
The IBM MQ AMS security policy interceptor could not verify or decrypt a message because the indicated <insert_5> error occurred. This can happen for several reasons, all of which are internal failures: (1) the message is not a valid PKCS#7 message; (2) the sender's certificate does not have the required key usage bit to be able to encrypt the message; (3) the sender's certificate was not recognized as a trusted certificate; (4) receiver is not among the recipients of the message.

AMS distribution list error.
Severity
20 : Error
Explanation
The IBM MQ AMS interceptor could not protect messages for a distribution list because not all of the destinations have compatible policies defined. The <insert_3> destination was found to have an incompatible policy definition when compared to the <insert_4> destination. The policies associated with each queue in the distribution list must match signature and encryption algorithms used, all intended recipients and toleration flags.
Response
Compare the policies defined for <insert_3> and <insert_4> and correct the AMS policies to match. If the problem persists, contact your IBM service representative.
AMQ9097W
AMS policy operation was successful, however the queue is not empty.
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
The policy operation was successful, however queue <insert_3> contains at least one message that was put prior to the policy change being effective. If the protection required by the policy has become more restrictive, this could lead to application security errors when browsing or removing the existing messages, alternatively if protection has been removed it could lead to applications retrieving an unusable message payload.
Response
Consider redefining the policy with toleration enabled to handle the existing messages.
AMQ9098E
FIPS mode is not available to AMS.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The IBM MQ AMS interceptor attempted to, but could not enable a FIPS mode of operation. The cryptographic provider used by AMS may have already been initialized for the application process previously without enabling FIPS mode, or the cryptographic provider may not support a FIPS mode of operation.
Response
Check that the AMS cryptographic provider supports FIPS mode and that it has been configured correctly. If the problem persists, contact your IBM service representative.

AMQ9246E
The TCP/IP listener on port <insert_1> could not start a new channel.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
An attempt has been made to connect to the queue manager by starting a new channel within the TCP/IP listener which is listening on port <insert_1>. The maximum socket number which can be used by a channel running on this listener is <insert_2>. A socket number beyond this maximum was allocated for the new channel. This connection attempt has been rejected, but the listener continues to listen for further connection requests. The socket number allocated for a new listener channel is related to the number of channels currently running within that listener process. The problem has arisen because too many channels are directed at the port on which this listener is listening.
Response
An extra listener process should be started to listen on a different port. Some of the channels to the queue manager should be redirected from the port on which the existing listener is listening to the new port.
AMQ9247E

AMQ9280E
Parameter requesting Suite B contains an invalid value.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
An SSL or TLS channel running on an MQ client has failed to start. This is because the MQSUITEB environment variable, or the MQSCO EncryptionPolicySuiteB field, contains an invalid value. The values specified were <insert_3>.
The channel is <insert_4>; in some cases its name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'. The channel did not start.
Response

An SSL or TLS channel running on an MQ client has failed to start. This is because the MQSUITEB environment variable, or the MQSCO EncryptionPolicySuiteB field, contains mutually exclusive values. All of the values are valid, but some of them cannot be used together. The values specified were <insert_3>.
The channel is <insert_4>; in some cases its name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'. The channel did not start.
Response
Set the MQSUITEB environment variable, or the MQSCO EncryptionPolicySuiteB field, to a valid combination of values. Restart the channel.
Refer to the IBM MQ Security documentation for more information on Suite B configuration.
AMQ9282E
Invalid CipherSpec for the configured Suite B security level.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The user is attempting to start a channel on a queue manager or MQ client which has been configured to run in Suite B mode. The user has specified a CipherSpec which does not meet the configured Suite B security level.
The channel is <insert_3>; in some cases its name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'. The channel did not start.
The remote host is <insert_4>.
Response
Redefine the channel to run with a Suite B compliant CipherSpec which satisfies the configured Suite B security level. Alternatively, the channel may be defined with the correct CipherSpec and the queue manager or MQ client should not be running in Suite B mode; if this is the case, ensure that Suite B mode is not configured. Once the error is corrected, restart the channel.
Refer to the IBM MQ Security documentation for more information on Suite B security levels and CipherSpecs.

AMQ9285E
The proposed CipherSpec is incompatible with a certificate.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The SSL or TLS handshake failed because the proposed CipherSpec is incompatible with one of the certificates.
It is necessary for both the local and remote systems to use a certificate which is suitable for use with the channel CipherSpec. Common causes of this error include:
(a) An RSA-based CipherSpec was specified when using a certificate which contains a non-RSA public key.
(b) An Elliptic Curve-based CipherSpec was specified when using a certificate which contains a non-EC public key.
The channel is <insert_3>; in some cases its name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'. The channel did not start.
The remote host is <insert_4>.
Response
Specify a different CipherSpec which is suitable for use with the digital certificates used on both the local and remote systems. Restart the channel.
Refer to the IBM MQ Security documentation for more information on CipherSpecs.
AMQ9286W
The revocation status of a certificate chain supplied by an SSL or TLS client could not be checked.
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
At least one certificate in a certificate chain supplied by the remote end of the channel does not contain an Authority Information Access extension with an OCSP URL and no other certificate revocation checking method is enabled. IBM MQ was unable to check the revocation status of the certificate chain.
The channel name is <insert_5>. In some cases the channel name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'.
The details of the certificate chain are: <insert_3>
The OCSPAuthentication configuration option for unknown revocation status is currently set to: <insert_4>
The SSL or TLS handshake will be stopped if the OCSPAuthentication option is set to 'Required' or will continue if it is set to 'AllowNoCheck' or 'Warn'.
Response
To enable revocation checking for certificates without an Authority Information Access extension that contains an OCSP URL, an alternative revocation checking method should be configured.
AMQ9287E
Invalid certificate validation policy.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
An SSL or TLS channel running on an MQ client has failed to start. This is because the MQCERTVPOL environment variable, or the MQSCO CertificateValPolicy field, contains an invalid value. The value specified was <insert_3>.
The channel is <insert_4>; in some cases its name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'. The channel did not start.
Response
Set the MQCERTVPOL environment variable, or the MQSCO CertificateValPolicy field, to a valid value. Restart the channel.
Refer to the IBM MQ Security documentation for more information on certificate validation policy configuration.
AMQ9288E
Secure data transfer limit for channel <insert_3> exceeded.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
CipherSpec <insert_4> has reached a data transfer limit of <insert_2> (the transfer limit is expressed in terms of TLS records for GCM ciphers, or MB for all other ciphers). Session keys using this CipherSpec must be used only to encrypt a limited quantity of data to reduce the risk of key compromise.
The channel <insert_3> terminated because it exceeded the allowed data transfer limit for its CipherSpec.
Response
This error can be avoided in one of the following ways:
(a) Use secret key reset to ensure that the session key is reset before the data transfer limit is exceeded.
(b) Use a stronger CipherSpec which is not subject to a data transfer limit.

Response
Restore access to the original transmission queue or issue the command using the '-n' parameter.
AMQ9296E
Password protection negotiation failed.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The channel <insert_3> could not be established because it failed to agree a password protection algorithm with the remote machine <insert_5>.
The channel did not start.
Response
Check whether the PasswordProtection attribute in the Channels stanza of <insert_4> prevents interoperability with the remote machine. Consider changing the PasswordProtection attribute.
Alternatively, consider using SSL or TLS to protect passwords instead. You must use a non-null CipherSpec to protect passwords.
AMQ9297W
Password protection negotiation failed for client channel <insert_3>.
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
The channel <insert_3> failed to agree a password protection algorithm with the remote machine <insert_5>, any passwords sent by the application will use cleartext. The PasswordProtection attribute in the Channels stanza of <insert_4> is set to WARN and so the channel is permitted to start.

Phase one of REFRESH CLUSTER REPOS(YES) has completed.
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
Phase one of REFRESH CLUSTER REPOS(YES) has completed. The Refresh Cluster(<insert_4>) command caused <insert_1> objects to be refreshed and republished to <insert_2> queue managers. Applications attempting to access cluster resources may see failures to resolve cluster resources until phase two of REFRESH CLUSTER is complete. Phase two is complete once all new information has been received from other members of the cluster. Monitor your SYSTEM.CLUSTER.COMMAND.QUEUE to determine when it has reached a consistently empty state to indicate that the refresh process has completed.

Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The repository queue manager could not process a REFRESH CLUSTER command with the REPOS(YES) option for the indicated cluster, because the local queue manager provides full repository management services for the cluster. The command is ignored.
Response
Either
1) Reissue the command without REPOS(YES), or
2) Issue the command on a queue manager which is not a full repository, or
3) Change this queue manager definition so that it is not a full repository.
AMQ9407W
Cluster queue <insert_3> is defined inconsistently.
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
The definition of cluster queue <insert_3> on the queue manager with UUID <insert_4> has different DEFPRTY, DEFPSIST, DEFBIND and DEFPRESP values from the definition of the same cluster queue on the queue manager with UUID <insert_5>. Both definitions now exist in the local repository. All definitions of the same cluster queue should be identical. In particular, problems arise if your applications rely on a queue default value which is defined inconsistently to determine messaging behavior. This applies, for example, if the applications open a cluster queue with option MQOO_BIND_AS_Q_DEF. If different instances of the queue have different DEFBIND values the behavior of the message transfer differs depending on which instance of the queue is selected when it is opened. In general the instance selected varies across opens.
Response
For each inconsistency decide which of the values is the correct one. Alter the definitions of cluster queue <insert_3> so that all definitions have correct DEFPRTY, DEFPSIST, DEFBIND and DEFPRESP values.
AMQ9408I
BIND_ON_OPEN messages for channel <insert_3> to dead-letter queue.
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
The remote CLUSRCVR for channel <insert_3> was deleted while undelivered BIND_ON_OPEN messages associated with that channel existed on the local SYSTEM.CLUSTER.TRANSMIT.QUEUE. These messages could not be allocated to another channel because they were put BIND_ON_OPEN, but were very unlikely to ever flow along the channel with which they were associated as this has now been deleted. An attempt has therefore been made to move them from the transmission queue to the local dead-letter queue. The MQDLH reason is MQFB_BIND_OPEN_CLUSRCVR_DEL. Note that any internal IBM MQ Clustering messages for the deleted channel will also have been removed from the SYSTEM.CLUSTER.TRANSMIT.QUEUE (these are discarded) so the current depth of the queue may have decreased by more than the number of user messages moved to the dead-letter queue.
Response
Examine the contents of the dead-letter queue. Each message is contained in an MQDLH structure that includes the reason why it was written and where it was originally addressed. Also look at previous error messages to see if the attempt to put messages to the dead-letter queue failed.
AMQ9409E
Repository manager ended abnormally.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The repository manager process ended abnormally. Termination of this process will cause the queue manager to terminate unless the tuning parameter TolerateRepositoryFailure has been set to 'TRUE'. If the queue manager does not terminate, further cluster management activity will not occur, this will effect the availability of cluster resources accessed or hosted by this queue manager.
Response

AMQ9427E
CLUSSDR channel does not point to a repository queue manager.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
A CLUSSDR channel must point to a queue manager that hosts repositories for all clusters of which the channel is a member. In addition, the CLUSRCVR for the channel must be a member of all the same clusters as the CLUSSDR channel. The queue manager pointed to by CLUSSDR channel <insert_3> does not meet these criteria for cluster <insert_4>. The remote queue manager has a QMID of <insert_5>.
Response
Check the definitions on the local and remote queue managers to ensure that the CLUSSDR channel points to a queue manager that hosts a repository for the cluster, and that the CLUSRCVR for the channel is a member of the cluster.
AMQ9428E
Unexpected publication of a cluster queue object received.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The local queue manager has received a publication of a cluster queue object from a remote queue manager on cluster <insert_3>. The local queue manager discards the request because it does not host a repository for cluster <insert_3> and has not subscribed to the published object. The remote CLUSSDR channel used to access the local queue manager has a channel name of <insert_4> and the remote queue manager has a QMID of <insert_5>.
Response
Check the definitions on the local and remote queue managers to ensure that the CLUSSDR channel points to a repository queue manager for the cluster.
AMQ9429E
Unexpected publication of a cluster queue deletion received.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The local queue manager has received a publication of a cluster queue deletion from a remote queue manager on cluster <insert_3>. The local queue manager discards the request because it does not host a repository for cluster <insert_3> and has not subscribed to the published object. The remote CLUSSDR channel used to access the local queue manager has a channel name of <insert_4> and the remote queue manager has a QMID of <insert_5>.
Response
Check the definitions on the local and remote queue managers to ensure that the CLUSSDR channel points to a repository queue manager for the cluster.
AMQ9430E
Unexpected cluster queue manager publication received.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The local queue manager has received a cluster queue manager publication on cluster <insert_3>. The local queue manager should not have received the publication because it does not host a repository for cluster <insert_3>, it has not subscribed to information concerning the published object, and the published object does not match any of its CLUSSDRs. The queue manager that sent the publication to the local queue manager has QMID <insert_4> (note that this is not necessarily the queue manager which originated the publication). CLUSSDR channel <insert_5> was used to send the publication.
Response
Check the CLUSSDR definition on the sending queue manager to ensure that it points to a repository queue manager for the cluster.
AMQ9431I
Remote queue manager no longer hosts a repository for cluster
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
The local queue manager has received a message from remote queue manager QMID <insert_3> indicating that it no longer hosts a repository for cluster <insert_4>. CLUSSDR channel <insert_5> is altered so that it can no longer be used to access queue manager <insert_3> within cluster <insert_4>. If the local queue manager does not host a repository for cluster <insert_4> the relevant subscriptions and publications are remade if possible.

None.
AMQ9432E
Query received by a non-repository queue manager
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The local queue manager has received a query from a remote queue manager on cluster <insert_3>. The local queue manager discards the query because it does not host a repository for cluster <insert_3>. The remote CLUSSDR channel used to access the local queue manager has a channel name of <insert_4> and the remote queue manager has a QMID of <insert_5>.
Response
Check the definitions on the local and remote queue managers to ensure that the CLUSSDR channel points to a repository queue manager for the cluster.
AMQ9433E
CLUSRCVR must be in the same cluster as its matching CLUSSDR.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
CLUSRCVR channel <insert_3> is not defined as a member of cluster <insert_4>. The local queue manager has received a command that indicates that CLUSSDR channel <insert_3> on the remote queue manager with QMID <insert_5> is defined as a member of cluster <insert_4>.
Response
Alter the CLUSRCVR or CLUSSDR definitions for channel <insert_3>, so that they are both members of the same cluster.

AMQ9448E
Repository manager failed. Retry in <insert_1> minutes, queue manager will terminate in <insert_2> minutes
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
Repository manager encountered a severe problem. See the earlier messages in the queue manager or system error logs for details. The repository manager will retry the command in <insert_1> minutes. If the problem is not rectified in <insert_2> minutes the queue manager will terminate. Until this problem is rectified no further cluster management activity will occur, this will affect the availability of cluster resources accessed or hosted by this queue manager.
Response
If possible, rectify the identified problem, otherwise contact your IBM support center. To postpone the queue manager from terminating due to this problem set the SYSTEM.CLUSTER.COMMAND.QUEUE queue to be GET(DISABLED).

AMQ9453I
FORCEREMOVE command failed, cluster <insert_3> target <insert_4> is not unique.
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
The repository queue manager could not process a RESET ACTION(FORCEREMOVE) command for the indicated cluster and target queue manager, because there is more than one queue manager with the specified name in the cluster. The command is ignored.
Response
Reissue the command specifying the identifier (QMID) of the queue manager to be removed, rather than its name.
AMQ9455I
FORCEREMOVE command failed, cluster <insert_3>, target <insert_4>, not found.
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
The repository queue manager could not process a RESET ACTION(FORCEREMOVE) command for the indicated cluster and target queue manager, because no information about that queue manager was found in the local repository. The command is ignored.
Response
Reissue the command, specifying the correct queue manager name or identifier.
AMQ9456W
Update not received for queue <insert_3>, queue manager <insert_4> from full repository for cluster <insert_5>.
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
The repository manager detected a cluster queue that had been used sometime in the last 30 days for which updated information should have been sent from a full repository. However, this has not occurred.
The repository manager will keep the information about this queue for a further 60 days from when the error first occurred.
Response
There are several possible responses:
1) There is a long-running problem with the local queue manager's CLUSRCVR in cluster <insert_5>. If this is true, then correct the problem urgently, to ensure that updates for the cluster are received.
2) There is a long-running problem on the remote queue manager's CLUSSDR in cluster <insert_5>. If this is true, then correct the problem urgently, to ensure that updates for the cluster are sent.
3) Check that the repository manager on the remote queue manager has not ended abnormally.
4) The remote queue manager is out of step with this queue manager, potentially due to a restore of the remote queue manager from a backup. The remote queue manager must issue REFRESH CLUSTER to synchronize with other queue managers in the cluster.
5) The remote queue manager is out of step with this queue manager, potentially due to a disaster recovery exercise in which a replacement queue manager with the same CLUSRCVR channel name was created, was run for a while, then ended. If this has happened, then the remote queue manager <insert_4> must now issue REFRESH CLUSTER to synchronize with other queue managers in the cluster.
6) If the above items have been checked, and this problem persists over several days (causing repeats of this error message in the local queue manager's error logs) then contact your IBM support center.
AMQ9457I

Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
The repository queue manager received a command from another queue manager, whose identifier is <insert_3>, reporting that it is again a repository for cluster <insert_4>. The cluster-sender channel <insert_5> is changed so that it can be used to access the other queue manager in relation to the the cluster.
Response
None.
AMQ9458E
Unable to access the repository cache exclusively.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
A process remains registered as requiring access to the repository cache during an operation that must have exclusive access to the cache. The queue manager <insert_3> issues this message after waiting for the process to remove its registration, but the registration is still present. The process preventing exclusive access to the repository cache has <insert_2> outstanding registrations.
Response
The registered process identifier (PID) accessing the repository cache is <insert_1>. Determine if this process is still running or terminated. If the process is not running or if the problem persists collect the items listed in the 'Problem determination' section of the System Administration manual and contact your IBM support center.
AMQ9459W
Cluster topic <insert_3> from <insert_4> rejected due to PSCLUS(DISABLED)
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
Queue manager attribute PSCLUS has been set to DISABLED to indicate that Publish/Subscribe activity is not expected between queue managers in this cluster. However, information regarding cluster topic <insert_3> has been sent to this queue manager over a channel from <insert_4>. The cluster topic definition is ignored and will not be visible from this queue manager.
Response
If you wish to enable publish/subscribe clustering, alter the PSCLUS attribute on all queue managers in the cluster to ENABLED. You may also need to issue REFRESH CLUSTER and REFRESH QMGR commands as detailed in the PSCLUS documentation. If you are not using publish/subscribe clusters you should delete the clustered topic object, and ensure PSCLUS is DISABLED on all queue managers.
AMQ9461I
Internal record for cluster object name <insert_3> has been checked and found to have incorrect contents
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
Internal checks for data consistency have found a problem with object name <insert_3>. Please contact your IBM Support representative.
Response
Keep this error message and provide it to your IBM Support representative. An additional command amqrfdm -mQMNAME -b can also be run, and this will dump extra data into FFST records. Again, provide these to IBM Support.
AMQ9465W
New cluster topic definition inconsistent.
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
The definition of cluster topic <insert_3> on the queue manager with UUID <insert_4> has a different <insert_5> attribute value than one or more cluster topics that already exist in the cluster cache. The existing topic objects are reported by message AMQ9466. All definitions of the same cluster topic should be identical, otherwise, problems may arise if your applications rely on one of these attributes to determine messaging behavior. For example, if an application opens a cluster topic and the different instances of the topic have different TOPICSTR values, the behavior of the message transfer depends on which instance of the topic happens to be selected when it is opened.
Response
Alter the definitions of the topic on the various queue managers so that they have identical values for all attributes.
AMQ9466W
Cluster topic definitions inconsistent.
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
The definition of cluster topic <insert_3> on the queue manager with UUID <insert_4> has a different <insert_5> attribute value than a cluster topic being added to the cluster cache. The topic object being added is reported by message AMQ9465. All definitions of the same cluster topic should be identical, otherwise, problems may arise if your applications rely on one of these attributes to determine messaging behavior. For example, if an application opens a cluster topic and the different instances of the topic have different TOPICSTR values, the behavior of the message transfer depends on which instance of the topic happens to be selected when it is opened.
Response
Alter the definitions of the topic on the various queue managers so that they have identical values for all attributes.
AMQ9467E
Repository error updating topic
Severity
20 : Error
Explanation
The cluster repository manager received an unexpected error code from the queue manager while updating topic <insert_3>. The Completion code was <insert_1>, reason code was <insert_2>.
Response
Refer to the IBM MQ product documentation about reason code <insert_2>. Collect the items listed in the Troubleshooting and support section of the IBM MQ product documentation, and use either the IBM MQ Support site, or the IBM Support Assistant (ISA), to see whether a solution is already available. If you are unable to find a match, contact your IBM support center.
AMQ9468I
Cluster receiver channel <insert_3> has been configured by multiple queue managers
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
Queue manager <insert_4> has joined a cluster using a cluster receiver channel with the same name as one that has already been defined by queue manager <insert_5>. All cluster receiver channels used within a cluster must be uniquely named. Only the last queue manager to join the cluster will use the named channel, Queue manager <insert_5> will not successfully participate in the cluster while the newer queue manager is a member.
Response
The use of a channel name currently associated with a different queue manager in the cluster may be intentional, for example the original queue manager may have been deleted and re-created as a new queue manager. However, accidental duplication of a channel name across multiple queue managers would also result in this behaviour. If this was not intended, further investigation into the configuration of the queue managers should be performed.
AMQ9469W
Update not received for CLUSRCVR channel <insert_3> hosted on queue manager <insert_4> in cluster <insert_5>.
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
The repository manager detected that the CLUSRCVR channel has not been re-published by its owning queue manager. This re-publish action should have happened automatically <insert_1> days ago, or in the time between then and now.
The repository manager will check for this condition approximately every hour, continuing for a period of approximately <insert_2> days from now. If an update for the CLUSRCVR channel is received during this period, these messages will stop. If no update is received, these messages will continue to be written. However, after this period has elapsed, if no update has been received, the local queue manager will discard its knowledge of this channel, and these messages will stop. You should be aware that Partial Repository queue managers in this cluster will cease to be able to use the channel at about that time.
Response
There are several possible responses:
1) If the channel had been removed intentionally, and is no longer required, you should consider removing it fully via the RESET CLUSTER command.
2) There is a long-running problem with the local queue manager's CLUSRCVR in cluster <insert_5>. If this is true, then correct the problem urgently, to ensure that updates for the cluster are received.
3) There is a long-running problem on the remote queue manager's CLUSSDR in cluster <insert_5>. If this is true, then correct the problem urgently, to ensure that updates for the cluster are sent.
4) Check that the repository manager on the remote queue manager has not ended abnormally.
5) The remote queue manager is out of step with this queue manager, potentially due to a restore of the remote queue manager from a backup. The remote queue manager must issue REFRESH CLUSTER to synchronize with other queue managers in the cluster.
6) The remote queue manager is out of step with this queue manager, potentially due to a disaster recovery exercise in which a replacement queue manager with the same CLUSRCVR channel name was created, was run for a while, then ended. If this has happened, then the remote queue manager <insert_4> must now issue REFRESH CLUSTER to synchronize with other queue managers in the cluster.
7) If the above items have been checked, and this problem persists over several days (causing repeats of this error message in the local queue manager's error logs) then contact your IBM support center.
AMQ9487E
Remote queue manager is a standby queue manager instance.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
Channel <insert_3> is closing because the remote queue manager at address <insert_5> is currently a standby queue manager instance.
Response
None.
AMQ9488E
Program cannot connect to a standby queue manager instance.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The connection attempt to queue manager <insert_4> failed with reason code <insert_1> because it is a standby queue manager instance.

Standby queue manager instances do not accept connections. Connect to the active queue manager instance instead.
AMQ9489E
The maximum number of instances, <insert_1>, of channel <insert_3> was reached.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The server-connection channel <insert_3> is configured so that the maximum number of instances that can run at the same time is <insert_1>. This limit was reached.
Response
Try the operation again when a new instance can be started.
If the limit has been reached because there are too many connections from one or more of your client applications, consider changing the applications to make fewer connections.
If you are not making use of sharing conversations, consider switching to this mode of operation because several client connections can then share one channel instance.
AMQ9490E
The maximum number of instances, <insert_1>, of channel <insert_3> was reached for an individual client.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The server-connection channel <insert_3> is configured so that the maximum number of instances that can run at the same time for any individual client is <insert_1>. This limit was reached for the client with remote network address <insert_4>.
Response
Try the operation again when a new instance can be started for this client.
If the limit has been reached because there are too many connections from the relevant client application, consider changing the application to make fewer connections.
If you are not making use of sharing conversations, consider switching to this mode of operation because several client connections can then share one channel instance.
AMQ9491E
Transmission queue <insert_3> set to NOSHARE.
Severity
20 : Error
Explanation
The channel <insert_4> on queue manager <insert_5> cannot start because this queue manager has a setting for PipeLineLength greater than 1, and so multiple threads will run in this channel's MCA. Only the first thread would be able to open the transmission queue <insert_3> because it is set to be non-shareable.
Response
Check the definition of the transmission queue <insert_3> on queue manager <insert_5> and set it to be SHARE instead of NOSHARE. Alternatively, you can set all channels on this queue manager to use only a single thread, by using the PipeLineLength parameter.
AMQ9492E
The <insert_3> responder program encountered an error.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The responder program was started but detected an error.
The host name was <insert_5>; in some cases the host name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'.
Response
Look at previous error messages in the error files to determine the error encountered by the responder program.
AMQ9494E
A protocol error was detected for channel <insert_3>.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
During communications with the remote queue manager, a TCP/IP read and receive call returned EINTR, indicating that it had been interrupted. Immediately after this the channel program detected a protocol error. The failure type was <insert_1> with associated data of <insert_2>.
Response
If you are running an AIX client you will avoid problems arising from EINTRs on TCP/IP reads, by writing your application so that system calls interrupted by signals are restarted. You must establish the signal handler with sigaction(2) and set the SA_RESTART flag in the sa_flags field of the new action structure. If you are running on a platform other than AIX, an AIX server, or an AIX client with an application that adheres to the restart guidelines provided above, contact the systems administrator who should examine the error logs to determine the cause of the failure.
AMQ9495E
The CLWL exit <insert_3> is inconsistent with a dynamic cache.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
When the CLWL exit <insert_3> was called for the ExitReason MQXR_INIT, the value <insert_1> was returned in the ExitResponse2 field. This indicates the CLWL exit is incompatible with the Queue Manager cache type which is dynamic. Either change the Queue Manager cache type to static (using the Tuning Parameter, ClusterCacheType=STATIC) or rewrite the CLWL exit to be compatible with a dynamic cache". The CLWL exit has been suppressed.
Response
None.
AMQ9496E
Channel ended by a remote exit.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
Channel program <insert_3> was ended because the channel exit at the remote host <insert_4> requested it.
Response
Examine the error logs at the remote end of the channel to see the reason why the remote exit ended the channel.
AMQ9498E

AMQ9503E
Channel negotiation failed.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
Channel <insert_3> between this machine and the remote machine <insert_4> could not be established due to a negotiation failure. In some cases the channel name can not be determined and so is shown as '????'.
The last control data received was type <insert_1> with associated error code <insert_2>.

Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The DCE_SEC_SRM_CHANNELEXIT exit was called on channel <insert_3>; the value of pContext->mechanism (<insert_1>) passed was not valid.
Response
This is probably because the DCE_SEC_SRM_CHANNELEXIT exit has been called without first calling the DCE_SEC_SCY_CHANNELEXIT security exit. Alter the system so that either both or neither are run.
AMQ9584E
DCE Security: message too short.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The DCE_SEC_SRM_CHANNELEXIT receive or message exit was called on channel <insert_3> to process an incoming message. The pDataLength parameter supplied to the exit indicated that the message received was too short to be a valid message for the relevant exit. The *pDataLength value was <insert_1>.

AMQ9614I (HP NSS)
Certificate is not signed by a trusted Certificate Authority.
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
The attempt to start channel <insert_3> failed because the certificate used in the SSL handshake is not signed by a Certificate Authority (CA) listed in the certificate trust list for this queue manager. This error can occur when;
(a) The trust.pem store being used contains an incomplete set of certificates to validate the peer certificate.
(b) One or more certificates in the the peer certificate chain have failed verification.
Response
Check that all of the required signer certificates are present in the trust.pem, adding any missing certificates. Use the openssl verify command line utility to verify the certificate chains being used are suitable.
AMQ9614I (IBM i)
Certificate is not signed by a trusted Certificate Authority.
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
The attempt to start channel <insert_3> failed because the certificate used in the SSL handshake is not signed by a Certificate Authority (CA) listed in the certificate trust list for this queue manager. This error can occur when;
(a) The SSL key repository does not contain a copy of the Certificate Authority certificate.
(b) The SSL key repository for the queue manager is specified as '*SYSTEM' and the application definition in Digital Certificate Manager has been modified to specify a CA trust list, excluding this CA.
(c) The remote end of the channel is configured to send a certificate for which the CA certificate is not in the local key repository.
Response
Use Digital Certificate Manager to ensure the appropriate Certification Authority certificates are present, and if applicable, add the required Certificate Authority (CA) certificates to the queue managers CA trust list.
Check that the remote certificate label configuration is correct.
AMQ9615I (IBM i)
Queue manager or Client user profile is not registered with DCM.
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
The attempt to start channel <insert_3> failed because the queue manager or client user profile is not registered as a SSL server application with Digital Certificate Manager (DCM). This error occurs when the SSL key repository for the queue manager or for IBM MQ client product is specified as '*SYSTEM' but IBM MQ cannot register the queue manager or client user profile as an SSL server application with DCM. Alternatively this error could occur when the application definition for the queue manager has been manually removed from DCM.
Response
For IBM MQ Base product attempt to re-register the queue manager with Digital Certificate Manager by issuing CHGMQM SSLKEYR(*SYSTEM). For IBM MQ client product attempt to set MQSSLKEYR environment to *SYSTEM. If this is unsuccessful you may need to manually add the application definition through Digital Certificate Manager. See the IBM MQ information center for more details.
AMQ9616E
The CipherSpec <insert_4> proposed by remote host <insert_5> is not enabled.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The SSL or TLS subsystem at the server end of a channel been configured in such a way that it has rejected the CipherSpec proposed by an SSL or TLS client.
This error most commonly occurs when the choice of acceptable CipherSpecs has been limited in one of the following ways:
(a) The server queue manager SSLFipsRequired attribute is set to YES and the channel is using a CipherSpec which is not FIPS-certified on the server.
(b) The server queue manager EncryptionPolicySuiteB attribute has been set to a value other than NONE and the channel is using a CipherSpec which does not meet the server's configured Suite B security level.
(c) The protocol used by the channel has been deprecated. Note that IBM may need to deprecate a protocol via product maintenance in response to a security vulnerability, for example SSLv3 and TLSv1 have been deprecated. Continued use of SSLv3 and/or TLSv1 protocols is not recommended but may be enabled by setting environment variable AMQ_SSL_V3_ENABLE=TRUE or AMQ_TLS_V1_ENABLE=TRUE as required.
(d) The requested CipherSpec has been deprecated or disallowed by TLS 1.3. Note that IBM may need to deprecate a CipherSpec via product maintenance in response to a security vulnerability, for example RC4_MD5_US has been deprecated. Continued use of deprecated CipherSpecs is not recommended but may be enabled by setting environment variable AMQ_SSL_WEAK_CIPHER_ENABLE=<CipherSpec>. For example, AMQ_SSL_WEAK_CIPHER_ENABLE=RC4_MD5_US
(e) The certificates in use are not acceptable in combination with the CipherSpec, for example the key signature algorithm (RSA or ECDSA) may not be supported by the negotiated CipherSpec, or the certificate's key size might be too short (some CipherSpecs mandate a minimum 2048-bit RSA key length).
(f) The CipherSpec is for TLS 1.3 and TLS 1.3 is not enabled. To enable TLS 1.3 set the INI variable AllowTLSV13=TRUE in the SSL stanza.
Response
Analyse why the proposed CipherSpec was not enabled on the server. Alter the client CipherSpec, or reconfigure the server to accept the proposed CipherSpec. Restart the channel.
AMQ9617E
Parameter requesting FIPS has an invalid value.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation

AMQ9622E
AUTHINFO object <insert_3> does not exist.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
A channel or channel process has failed to start because the namelist of AUTHINFO objects includes the name <insert_3>, but no AUTHINFO object of that name exists.
Response
Ensure all the names in the namelist specified on the SSLCRLNL queue manager attribute correspond to AUTHINFO objects which are to be used on the SSL channels. Restart the failing channel or channel process.
AMQ9623E
Error inquiring on AUTHINFO object <insert_3>.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
A channel or channel process has failed to start because reason code <insert_1> was returned when an inquire was performed on AUTHINFO object <insert_3>.
Response
Look at the MQRC_ values in the IBM MQ Application Programming Reference to determine the meaning of reason code <insert_1>, correct the error, and restart the failing channel or channel process.
AMQ9624E
AUTHINFO object <insert_3> is not of type CRLLDAP or OCSP.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
A channel or channel process has failed to start because one of the AUTHINFO objects specified in the SSLCRLNL namelist does not have a valid AUTHTYPE. Instead the type value is <insert_1>.
Response
Include only AUTHINFO objects with AUTHTYPE CRLLDAP or AUTHTYPE OCSP in the namelist specified on the SSLCRLNL queue manager attribute. Restart the channel or channel process.
AMQ9625E

AMQ9626E
Channel hanging while initializing SSL.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The current channel cannot start because another channel is hanging while initializing the SSL subsystem.
Response
Investigate the reason for the hang on the other channel. Once this is rectified, restart this channel.
AMQ9627E
The path and stem name for the SSL key repository have not been specified.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The directory path and file stem name for the SSL key repository have not been specified. On a MQ client system there is no default location for this file. SSL connectivity is therefore impossible as this file cannot be accessed.
Response
Use the MQSSLKEYR environment variable or MQCONNX API call to specify the directory path and file stem name for the SSL key repository.
AMQ9628E
An LDAP server containing CRLs was specified with an invalid CONNAME.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The IBM MQ client has failed to connect because an invalid CONNAME was found for one of the LDAP servers containing CRLs. The invalid value is <insert_3>.

Response
Correct your SSL cryptographic hardware parameters and restart the channel.
AMQ9631E
The CipherSpec negotiated during the SSL handshake does not match the required CipherSpec for channel <insert_3>.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
There is a mismatch between the CipherSpecs on the local and remote ends of channel <insert_3>. The channel will not run until this mismatch is resolved. The CipherSpec required in the local channel definition is <insert_4>. The name of the CipherSpec negotiated during the SSL handshake is <insert_5>. A code is displayed if the name of the negotiated CipherSpec cannot be determined.
Response
Change the channel definitions for <insert_3> so the two ends have matching CipherSpecs and restart the channel. When using the 'ANY' type CipherSpecs ensure that the Client CipherSpec value would meet the requirements for the <insert_4> CipherSpec set on the channel <insert_3>. If the client is set to use the 'ANY' type CipherSpecs then the TLS handshake may use a higher protocol than is allowed by the <insert_3> channel definition CipherSpec. If the certificate in use by one end of the channel is a Global Server Certificate, then the negotiated CipherSpec may not match that specified on either end of the channel. This is because the SSL protocol allows a Global Server Certificate to automatically negotiate a higher level of encryption. In these cases specify a CipherSpec which meets the requirements of the Global Server Certificate.
AMQ9631E (IBM i)
The CipherSpecs at the ends of channel <insert_3> do not match.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
There is a mismatch between the CipherSpecs on the local and remote ends of channel <insert_3>. The channel will not run until this mismatch is resolved. The local CipherSpec is <insert_4> and the remote CipherSpec is <insert_5>.
Response
Change the channel definition for <insert_3> so that both ends have matching CipherSpecs and restart the channel.
AMQ9633E
Bad SSL certificate for channel <insert_3>.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
A certificate encountered during SSL handshaking is regarded as bad for one of the following reasons:
(a) it was formatted incorrectly and could not be validated
(b) it was formatted correctly but failed validation against the Certification Authority (CA) root and other certificates held on the local system
(c) it was found in a Certification Revocation List (CRL) on an LDAP server
(d) a CRL was specified but the CRL could not be found on the LDAP server
(e) an OCSP responder has indicated that it is revoked
The channel is <insert_3>; in some cases its name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'. The remote host is <insert_5>. The channel did not start.
The details of the certificate which could not be validated are <insert_4>.
The certificate validation error was <insert_2>.
Response
Check which of the possible causes applies on your system. Correct the error, and restart the channel.
This error might indicate that the remote end of the channel is configured to send the wrong certificate. Check the certificate label configuration at the remote end of the channel and ensure that the local key repository contains all of the necessary CA certificates.
AMQ9633E (IBM i)
Bad SSL certificate for channel <insert_3>.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
A certificate encountered during SSL handshaking is regarded as bad for one of the following reasons:
(a) it was formatted incorrectly and could not be validated
(b) it was formatted correctly but failed validation against the Certification Authority (CA) root and other certificates held on the local system
(c) it was found in a Certification Revocation List (CRL) on an LDAP server
(d) a CRL was specified but the CRL could not be found on the LDAP server
(e) an OCSP responder has indicated that it is revoked
The channel is <insert_3>; in some cases its name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'. The remote host is <insert_5>. The channel did not start.
Response
Check which of the possible causes applies on your system. Correct the error, and restart the channel.
AMQ9635E
Channel <insert_3> did not specify a valid CipherSpec.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
Channel <insert_3> specifies a value of <insert_4> for CipherSpec which is not valid to start a secure connection.
Response
Check product documentation to confirm that the CipherSpec specified in the channel definition is valid. Note that IBM may need to deprecate the use of CipherSpecs via product maintenance in response to a security vulnerability.
A blank CipherSpec value specifies that the channel was expected to use a plaintext connection but the remote channel defintion expects to use a secure connection.
If the default list of enabled CipherSpecs has been provided by setting the AMQ_ALLOWED_CIPHERS environment variable, or provided by setting the 'AllowedCipherSpecs' attribute under the SSL stanza in the qm.ini file, the channel CipherSpec must be on this list.
All CipherSpecs that use NULL, SHA-1, MD5, DES, Triple DES, RC2 and RC4 algorithms have been deprecated. All other CipherSpecs that use the SSLv3 or TLSv1 protocol have been deprecated. Continued use of any of these CipherSpecs is not recommended but may be temporarily enabled by setting the AMQ_SSL_WEAK_CIPHER_ENABLE environment variable, or via the 'AllowWeakCipherSpec' attribute under the SSL stanza in the qm.ini file.
If the desired CipherSpec is a TLS 1.3 CipherSpec then you must enable TLS 1.3. To enable TLS 1.3 set the INI variable AllowTLSV13=TRUE in the SSL stanza of the mqclient.ini and qm.ini files.
Change channel <insert_3> to specify a valid CipherSpec.
AMQ9636E
SSL distinguished name does not match peer name, channel <insert_3>.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The distinguished name, <insert_4>, contained in the SSL certificate for the remote end of the channel does not match the local SSL peer name for channel <insert_3>. The distinguished name at the remote host <insert_5> must match the peer name specified (which can be generic) before the channel can be started.
Response
If this remote system should be allowed to connect, either change the SSL peer name specification for the local channel so that it matches the distinguished name in the SSL certificate for the remote end of the channel, or obtain the correct certificate for the remote end of the channel.
This error might indicate that the remote end of the channel is configured to use the wrong certificate. Check the certificate label for the remote end of the channel.
Restart the channel.
AMQ9637E
During handshake, the remote partner sent no certificate.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The conversation cannot begin because a certificate has not been supplied by the remote partner.
The channel name is <insert_3>.
The remote host is <insert_5>.
If this error message is written on the receiving side of the channel, then the channel attributes <insert_4> caused the check to be made.
Response
Look at the key repository on the remote side of this channel, and make sure the appropriate certificates are present, with correct labels.
AMQ9638E
SSL communications error for channel <insert_3>.
Severity

AMQ9641E
Remote CipherSpec error for channel <insert_3> to host <insert_4>.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The remote end of channel <insert_3> on host <insert_4> has indicated a CipherSpec error <insert_5>. The channel did not start.
Response
Check that the CipherSpec values specified on the <insert_3> channel definition on both the local and remote system match. If necessary, review the queue manager error logs on the remote system to discover more information about the CipherSpec error. When using the the 'ANY' type CipherSpecs, check that the Client CipherSpec value would meet the requirements of the <insert_3> channel definition CipherSpec requirements. If the client is set to use the 'ANY' type CipherSpecs then the TLS handshake may use a higher protocol than is allowed by the <insert_3> channel definition CipherSpec.
AMQ9642E
No SSL or TLS certificate for channel <insert_3>.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The channel <insert_3> did not supply a certificate to use during SSL or TLS handshaking, but a certificate is required by the remote queue manager.
The remote host is <insert_4>.
The channel did not start.
Response
Ensure that the key repository of the local queue manager or MQ client contains a certificate which is associated with the queue manager or client. If you have configured a certificate label, check that the certificate exists.
Alternatively, if appropriate, change the remote channel definition so that its SSLCAUTH attribute is set to OPTIONAL and it has no SSLPEER value set.

IBM MQ was unable to start an SSL channel because one of the AUTHINFO objects specified in the SSLCRLNL namelist has an invalid OCSPURL parameter.
The OCSP URL is <insert_3> and the channel name is <insert_4>. In some cases the channel name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'.
Response
The OCSP URL cannot be blank and must be a valid HTTP URL. Correct the OCSP URL and restart the channel or channel process.
Refer to the security section of the IBM MQ Information Center for details of how to use OCSP URLs.
AMQ9719E
Invalid CipherSpec for FIPS mode.
Severity
30 : Error
Explanation
The user is attempting to start a channel on a queue manager or MQ client which has been configured to run in FIPS mode. The user has specified a CipherSpec which is not FIPS-compliant. The channel is <insert_3>; in some cases its name cannot be determined and so is shown as '????'.
Response
Redefine the channel to run with a FIPS-compliant CipherSpec. Alternatively, the channel may be defined with the correct CipherSpec and the queue manager or MQ client should not be running in FIPS mode; if this is the case, ensure that FIPS mode is not configured. Once the error is corrected, restart the channel.

AMQ9875I
REFRESH CLUSTER processing started for cluster.
Severity
0 : Informational
Explanation
Refresh cluster processing started for cluster(<insert_3>) A REFRESH CLUSTER command has been issued on this queue manager. In phase one this will discard all locally cached information for the cluster and request new information from other members of the cluster when necessary. Phase two processes the information received. For large cluster configurations this process can take a significant time, especially on full repository queue managers, and during this time applications attempting to access cluster resources may see failures to resolve cluster resources. In addition, cluster configuration changes made on this queue manager may not be processed until the refresh process has completed.
Response
Defer any cluster related work on this queue manager until both phases are complete. Message AMQ9442 or message AMQ9404 will be issued to this log at the end of phase one. Completion of phase two can be determined when SYSTEM.CLUSTER.COMMAND.QUEUE has reached a consistently empty state.

AMQ9879W
Conflicting clustered topic <insert_3>
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
When conflicting clustered topic definitions are detected one or more of the definitions will have a CLSTATE of INVALID and those will not be used by this queue manager. The clustered topic <insert_3> from queue manager <insert_4> has been marked as INVALID. Conflicting clustered topics are those that relate to the same topic string but have different settings for their topic name, cluster route or cluster name. Additionally, clustered topics that are above or below another clustered topic in the topic tree (based on their topic strings) may conflict.
Response
View the clustered topics visible to this queue manager and determine which are the required definitions. Delete or modify the others to remove any conflict. Following this, ensure all clustered topics have a CLSTATE of ACTIVE on all queue managers in the cluster.
AMQ9880W

AMQ9885W
Cluster object name <insert_3> located at QMID <insert_4> is resolved using old cached information.
Severity
10 : Warning
Explanation
The local queue manager has allowed an application to use the object named <insert_3> located at the queue manager with QMID <insert_4> from the local cached cluster information, without being certain that it is currently up to date. This warning is being written because the object has not been used for a long time, but now an application needs to use it. The local queue manager has sent new queries to full repository queue managers in all clusters, but responses have not been received from all within a reasonable time.
It is possible this is a temporary condition due to slowness in processing in one of: the local queue manager, the remote full repository queue manager, or the channels between them. Therefore this condition might only last a few seconds, and so it might clear before you see this message.
The object type is <insert_1>. If this object is a queue, the number is 1. If this object is a channel (a route to a queue manager) then the number is 2, and the queue manager name is <insert_5>.
If this object is not renewed by information from the full repositories for a long time, then it will eventually be removed automatically from the local cache.
The object is due to be removed automatically from the local cache in <insert_2> days.
Response
Check the queue manager error logs for errors on the cluster channels to and from the full repository queue managers. Correct the reason for any errors.
You should note the number of days left before this object will be removed from the local cache, and ensure any problem is corrected before that time, because one or more applications is still trying to use this object.
AMQ9886E
Cannot become a full repository for cluster <insert_4>.
Severity
20 : Error
Explanation
This queue manager has been identified as needing to automatically become a full repository for cluster <insert_4>, however it can not be made one.

Response
Verify that this queue managers REPOS and REPOSNL attributes are empty and restart the queue manager.
AMQ9887W
