Local fix

  • Copy the 033304E3.tbl and 04E30333.tbl files from a WMQ v6.0.2+
    installation to the <MQ_INSTALL_ROOT>\conv\table folder; where
    <MQ_INSTALL_ROOT> is the root WMQ server installation directory.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Data conversion between CCSID 819 and other CCSIDs.
    
    Platforms affected:
    Linux (s390x),Linux (x86),Linux (x86-64),Solaris (SPARC),
    Solaris (x86-64),Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    A change was made at v7 to the way that conversion tables were
    issued for installation. This change did not take into account
    a number of conversion tables which had been issued at v6.
    

Problem conclusion

  • WebSphere MQ v7 was updated in order to ensure it has a complete
    set of conversion tables.
