APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • ClientExitPath stanza is missing from the mqclient.ini file if
    a fix pack is applied on top of a v7.0.* system.
    

Local fix

  • As a workaround to this issue, customers can add the
    ClientExClientExitPath manually to the file mqclient.ini.
    For example:-
    ClientExitPath:
        ExitsDefaultPath=<32bitChannelExitlocation>
        ExitsDefaultPath64=<64bitChannelExitlocation>
    where <32bitChannelExitLocation> is the location of the 32bit
    channel exit and <64bitChannelExitlocation> is the location of
    the 64bit channel exit.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of WebSphere MQ client applications applying 7.0.1.* fix
    packs.
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The ClientExitPath stanza is missing from the client
    configuration file MQClient.ini after upgrading using one of
    the fix packs for WebSphere MQ V7.0.1. This file is overwritten
    when the fix packs are installed and is missing the dynamically
    created ClientExitPath stanza. This overwrite also causes any
    user changes made to this file to be lost.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The client configuration file MQClient.ini is installed when
    WebSphere MQ is installed, and it is expected that users can
    update it. This file will no longer be updated by WebSphere MQ
    fix packs to avoid reverting any user changes in this file.
    
    Note: Customers who have applied V7.0.1 fix packs
    7.0.1.1, 7.0.1.2 or 7.0.1.3 can manually edit the
    MQClient.ini to include the ClientExitPath stanza.
