APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The COBOL wrapper libraries were changed from type LINKFILE to
    DLL in the v5.3.1.8 Fixpack, and the packaging unintentionally
    stripped the symbols from the Guardian variant of the library
    ZWMQBIN.MQMCB.
    
    During the link phase of a cobal program build, on HP Nonstop
    systems, the following fatal error is encountered:
    "Cannot use file specified in CONSULT or SEARCH directive
    \NSK97.$DV06.ZWMQBIN.MQMCB [Warning 614]".
    

Local fix

  • There is no functional difference between the OSS and Guardian
    versions of this library. The OSS variant of the library does
    contain the symbols and should be used to build Guardian
    applications in v5.3.1.8 by copying the library into the
    Guardian filesystem and changing it's filecode to 800.
    
    Alternatively, the MQMCB library from v5.3.1.7 can be used.
    There are NO functional differences between the v5.3.1.7 and
    v5.3.1.8 MQMCB libraries, the only change is in the file type
    and the addition of the VPROC in v5.3.1.8.
    

Problem summary

  • The COBOL wrapper libraries were changed from type LINKFILE to
    DLL in the v5.3.1.8 Fixpack, and the packaging unintentionally
    stripped the symbols from the Guardian variant of the library
    ZWMQBIN.MQMCB.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Remove the stripping of mqmcb in gbin/mqmcb from the packaging
    process
    

Temporary fix

  • There is no functional difference between the OSS and Guardian
    versions of this library. The OSS variant of the library does
    contain the symbols and should be used to build Guardian
    applications in v5.3.1.8 by copying the library into the
    Guardian filesystem and changing the filecode (800 on H series
    operating systems, 700 on G series operating systems).
