Error description

  • WebSphere MQ (WMQ) Explorer v7 returns "Publish/Subscribe broker
    not  started" and nothing shows in the list when the 'Topics'
    node is selected for a v6 iSeries queue manager, even though the
    Publish/Subscribe broker processes are running. No
    error messages are written to the WMQ or queue manager error
    logs.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of the WMQ Explorer, trying to administer
    Publish/Subscribe (pub/sub) topics on an iSeries queue manager
    will experience this problem.
    
    Platforms affected:
    Linux (x86),Linux (x86-64),Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The WebSphere MQ Explorer was checking if the MQ pub/sub broker
    was running for a queue manager by looking for the broker
    process name "amqfcxba". On iSeries, the process names are in
    upper case.  WMQ Explorer was only checking for lower case,
    hence the search failed and the error message was shown.
    

Problem conclusion

  • WebSphere MQ Explorer now checks for the broker process name in
    uppercase as well as in lowercase.
