Configuring IBM MQ
The HPE NonStop version of IBM® MQ is different from the product on other platforms. Several NonStop-specific features have been added to the core product, while other features have been removed.
IBM MQ for HPE NonStop V8.1 is available for J-Series and L-Series HPE NonStop operating systems.
For HPE NonStop servers with J-Series operating system, WebSphere MQ 5.3 is also available. Although the two versions of IBM MQ are different in many respects, applications written for WebSphere MQ for HP NonStop Server V5.3 will run on IBM MQ for HPE NonStop V8.1. System management of IBM MQ for HPE NonStop V8.1 is, however, different from system management of WebSphere MQ 5.3.
The following topics describe NonStop-specific configuration options for IBM MQ for HPE NonStop V8.1, and how these options can be used. In some cases, where WebSphere MQ for HP NonStop Server V5.3 provides tools for configuring NonStop-specific properties, tools with the same interface are also available for IBM MQ for HPE NonStop V8.1. The new versions of the old tools have reduced functionality in some areas, however, because certain parameters are no longer needed or available for IBM MQ for HPE NonStop V8.1.
Most NonStop-specific parameters can be configured with a new program
runnscnf), which was not available on NonStop with WebSphere MQ 5.3, and
is also not available on any other platform. Usage and options of
described in this documentation. In some cases, runnscnf is an alternative to the
tools that are compatible with WebSphere MQ for HP NonStop Server 5.3.
Note that this documentation only describes tools and options that are specific to NonStop, and not part of the general product. For tools that are part of IBM MQ V8 in general (like crtmqm or strmqm), see IBM Documentation https://www.ibm.com/docs/SSFKSJ_8.0.0/com.ibm.mq.helphome.v80.doc/WelcomePagev8r0.html. If there are significant differences between a general tool and the NonStop version of that tool (for example, as for dspmqfls) these differences are described in this document.
There are also some area where you can use HPE NonStop tools to configure the NonStop system to run IBM MQ.
