Error description

  • When using WebSphere MQ 8.0.0.0 and adding remote access for MQ
    Administrators, the following 2 runmqsc commands were issued:
    .
    SET CHLAUTH(*) TYPE(BLOCKUSER) USERLIST('nobody','*MQADMIN')
    SET CHLAUTH(SYSTEM.ADMIN.*) TYPE(BLOCKUSER) USERLIST('nobody')
    .
    They are described in this technote:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21577137
    WMQ 7.1 / 7.5 queue manager RC 2035 MQRC_NOT_AUTHORIZED or
    AMQ4036 when using client connection as an MQ Administrator
    .
    The output of the dmpmqcfg command shows the following stanza
    for the first of the newly added channel authentication records:
    + begin
    SET CHLAUTH('*') +
       TYPE(BLOCKUSER) +
       USERLIST('nobody' +
               ,'*MQADMIN') +
    * ALTDATE(2014-07-24) +
    * ALTTIME(10.36.23) +
       ACTION(REPLACE)
    (blank)
    * Unknown Selector 1021(205) +
    ACTION(REPLACE)
    + end

Local fix

  • Removing this text from the dmpmqcfg output will make it usable:
    
     * Unknown Selector 1021(205) +
       ACTION(REPLACE)
    
    This text is returned when there are no protection policies
    defined on the queue manager and so can be safely removed.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of dmpmqcfg who do not have any security policies defined
    are affected by this issue
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The dmpmqcfg utility will send an inquire policy command to the
    queue manager in order to ask for information about policy
    objects. If no policy objects are defined in the queue manager,
    then the following is printed by the dmpmqcfg command:
    
     * Unknown Selector 1021(205) +
       ACTION(REPLACE)
    
    This problem is caused when the queue manager sends back a PCF
    message that the dmpmqcfg utility does not understand and the
    dmpmqcfg command then tries to display it.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was modified so that the dmpmqcfg utility ignores the
    "no protection policies found" response from the queue manager
    rather than try and display it.
