Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    WebSphere MQ V7.0.1.3 users using the PCF command
    MQCMD_INQUIRE_CHANNEL_NAMES to inquire channel name and channel
    type.
    
    Platforms affected:
    All Distributed (iSeries, all Unix and Windows)
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The PCF command MQCMD_INQUIRE_CHANNEL_NAMES was originally
    designed to return just a list of channel names at WebSphere MQ
    5.3 and earlier releases. However, this was broken at
    WebSphere MQ 6 when channels were rewritten as queue manager
    objects. At WebSphere MQ V6 and WebSphere MQ V7 (prior to
    7.0.1.3), the inquire channel names command returns the channel
    type along with the channel name. This behavior was changed in
    WebSphere MQ V7.0.1.3 and because of that the PCF command
    inquire channel names returns only the list of channel names.
    However, in Z/OS this command returns the channel types and QSG
    dispositions.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To be consistent with the Z/OS implementation, the distributed
    code for WMQ is modified so that the channel types are also
    returned along with the channel names as the output for the PCF
    command MQCMD_INQUIRE_CHANNEL_NAMES. The selector that will be
    returned in the response data is MQIACH_CHANNEL_TYPES and this
    will be an integer list (MQCFIL).
