Error description

  • The WebSphere MQ FTE/MFT V7.5 and V8.0
    maxInputOutputMessageLength agent property can be set to any
    numerical value.
    
    It should be validated to be within a range from 0 to the
    WebSphere MQ maximum value of 100MB.
    If the user sets this property to a value greater than 100MB
    then the user is in danger of receiving the WebSPhere MQ
    response code of MQRC_MSG_TOO_BIG_FOR_Q_MGR(2031).
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All users of the WebSphere MQ MFT V7.5 and V8.0
    maxInputOutputMessageLength agent property.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The WebSphere MQ FTE/MFT V7.5 and V8.0
    maxInputOutputMessageLength agent property could be set to any
    numerical value.
    
    No validation was performed on this property which resulted in
    the possibility of it being set to a value greater than the
    WebSphere MQ maximum message size of 100MB.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product code has been changed to restrict the
    maxInputOutputMessageLength agent property to only be set to a
    value between 0 and 100MB. If the property is set to a value
    outside of this range, then the BFGUB0023E message will be
    generated the agent will fail to start.
