APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • On Windows, if a file is created outside of the File Transder
    config directory tree and then moved into that tree (for
    example, into an agent's config directory) the file's
    permissions are set such that neither the agent nor user can
    access it.
    
    The following error may be observed:
    
    BFGPR0046E: A problem has occurred while attempting to open the
    C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere
    MQ\mqft\config\MFTCOORD\agents\MFTQM2CDBRIDGE\ConnectDirectCrede
    ntials.xml XML file. The internal MQMFT data has not been
    updated. The details of the error are: C:\Program
    Files\IBM\WebSphere
    MQ\mqft\config\MFTCOORD\agents\MFTQM2CDBRIDGE\ConnectDirectCrede
    ntials.xml (Access is denied.)
    
    A secondary symptom of this problem may be that the user who
    created and moved the file will also not be able to access the
    file and will, for example, get a similar "Access Denied" error
    when opening the file in a text editor.
    

Local fix

  • A workaround for this problem is to initially create the file
    directly under the File Transfer directory tree so that the
    filethen has the correct permissions associated with it.
    Alternatively if you have already moved a file to the
    File Transfer config directory tree and are now
    encountering the "Access Denied" error, you can still
    edit the file's security permissions to make the file
    editable again. Setting the recommended level of security
    permissions on the file should allow both editing by the
    owning user and reading of the config by the agent.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Version 7.5.0
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    Because files placed into the secured directory hierarchy were
    not configured to inherit permissions from the directory, the
    default permissions given to the files could render the files
    inaccessible to either the agent or the user which placed them
    there.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been altered to ensure that file placed into the
    secured directory inherit the permissions from that directory,
    thereby ensuring that the appropriate users can access the
    files.
