APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • This only affects channels which have been inquired upon using
    the PCF MQCMD_INQUIRE_CHANNEL_NAMES command with a ChannelType
    of MQCHT_CLNTCONN. While the channel names are reported
    correctly, a large number is returned for the channel type when
    it should be returning MQCHT_CLNTCONN (6).
    A example of the incorrect output seen is as follows:
    Channel names:
    SYSTEM.DEF.CLNTCONN
    Channel types:
    101058054
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who rely on the output of the PCF
    MQCMD_INQUIRE_CHANNEL_NAMES command
    
    Platforms affected:
    All Distributed (iSeries, all Unix and Windows)
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    APAR IC72717 allowed ChannelType to be returned on the PCF
    command Inquire Channel Names. An incorrect assignment caused
    the ChannelType field for client channels to be corrupt.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was corrected so that the correct value of
    MQCHT_CLNTCONN (6) is returned in the PCF response.
