  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • WebSphere MQ clients can create an MQCD structure containing a
    channel definition and pass it to the MQCONNX function via the
    MQCNO connect options structure.  Even though the client has
    properly filled in the MQCD structure, the MQCONNX call fails
    with reason code MQRC_CD_ERROR (2277).  A trace of the client
    shows reason code rrcE_INVALID_MQCD, and the error log shows
    message AMQ9498 ("The MQCD structure supplied was not valid")
    with the following explanation:
    .
    The value of the 'ExitNameLength' field has the value '0'.
    This value is invalid for the operation requested.
    

Local fix

  • Connecting using a client channel definition table or by using
    the MQSERVER environment variable.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users using MQ Client with MQCONNX and supplying channel
    definition using MQCD.
    
    Platforms affected:
    All Distributed (iSeries, all Unix and Windows)
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    MQCONNX  failed with error rrcE_INVALID_MQCD when validating the
    ExitNameLength or ExitDataLength because of  incorrect length
    check condition on these fields.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere client code has been modified to correctly
    validate the ExitNameLength and ExitDataLength fields.
