Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who are setting the Filesystem stanza option
    ValidateAuth=No
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Users who set the Filesystem stanza option ValidateAuth=No are
    expecting permissions set on the queue manager error logs to
    remain unchanged.
    
    Because of code changes made during 8.0 development, the
    ValidateAuth=No option was being disregarded.  Therefore the
    file permissions of the queue manager error logs were being
    changed back to their default values when the logs were written
    to, including during a queue manager end or start operation,
    even when ValidateAuth=No was set.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM MQ product has been corrected so that setting
    Filesystem: ValidateAuth=No in the qm.ini file will now cause
    the queue manager to leave the permissions on the error log
    files unaltered.
