IT08506: MQ V 8.0 : JAVA JMS COMPONENTS NOT UPGRADED BY FIXPACK INSTALLATION

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A user installs MQ 8.0.0.0 with only the MFT_agent selected.
    This automatically also installs Java Messaging for MQ which is
    needed for MFT.
    The user then installs MQ 8 fixpack 2 (8.0.0.2) and notices that
    the MFT component is upgraded to 8.0.0.2 but the Java components
    are not.
    

Local fix

  • Ensure that the Java messaging component is manually selected
    for installation. Then reinstall the product and fix pack
    
    If using an MQParms.ini response file, the file contents should
    be modified to:
    
      ADDLOCAL="MFT_Agent,JavaMsg"
      REMOVE="Server,Explorer,Toolkit"
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users applying an IBM MQ v8 fix pack on
    Windows to an IBM MQ installation with the Managed File Transfer
    components, but not the Java messaging components, selected for
    a custom installation.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    An incorrect relationship defined between components meant that
    the fix pack installer did not correctly honor the prerequisite
    dependency on the Java messaging component when applying
    maintenance to the Managed File Transfer component.
    
    This meant that if the user had explicitly requested not to
    install the Java messaging component, but had requested the
    Managed File Transfer component, then the Managed File Transfer
    component was updated by the fix pack installer, but the Java
    messaging component was not.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The relationship defined between these components in the fix
    pack installer configuration has been updated so that this
    prerequisite dependency is taken into account when applying
    maintenance.
