IC58711: MQCLIENT.INI FILE INSTALLED WITH QUOTES AROUND EXITDEFAULTPATH AND EXITDEFAULTPATH64

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • WebSphere MQ V7 install on Windows systems creates an
    mqclient.ini file containing a ClientExitPath stanza. However
    the setting provided for ExitsDefaultPath is, incorrectly,
    provided in quoted form. This can result in exits, if defined
    for a client connection channel, not being loaded.
    

Local fix

  • Alter the mqclient.ini file to remove the quotations.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere MQ v7 users running client applications.
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The install script was incorrectly adding quotes around the
    path to be used.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The extra quotes are removed from the path. Installs of
    versions of the client including the APAR fix will set
    ExitsDefaultPath and ExitsDefaultPath64 to valid values.
    
    For installs from the original WebSphere MQ Server CD, until a
    manufacturing refresh providing a corrected CD install image is
    available, the file should be corrected manually by deleting
    the quotes.
