Error description

  • WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition (WMQFTE) v7 agent terminates
    with
      BFGAG0107E: The agent has received a reason code of '2063'
      from the MQI.  The agent cannot continue processing and will
      now end.
    This occurs when the fteAgent receives a request from an
    unknown userid. It is expected that an unknown userid will
    result in error code 2063 MQRC_SECURITY_ERROR from WMQ but it
    was not expected that the WMQFTE agent should terminate due to
    this error code.
    ADDITIONAL KEYWORDS: WMQ FTE security error BFGAG0107E
    BFGAG0107 Active Directory RPC domain
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The agent terminates because it treats the MQRC_SECURITY_ERROR
    as unrecoverable.  The queue manager can return
    MQRC_SECURITY_ERROR if LDAP is temporarily unavailable, for
    example.  This is not desirable as a restart of the LDAP server
    will cause all the agents connected to the queue manager using
    that LDAP server to end.
    
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users using MQ security
    
    PLATFORMS AFFECTED:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • This APAR changes how the agent treats MQRC_SECURITY_ERROR so
    instead of ending, it will try to recover.  When LDAP service is
    restored, the agents will continue processing.
