    Note:  After running fteCleanAgent messages messages may be
    left on the command queue.
    

Local fix

  • The workaround to this issue is to clear the messages on the
    agent's  SYSTEM.FTE.COMMAND. queue manually, for
    example via runmqsc or the WebSphere MQ Explorer, and then
    rerun the fteCleanAgent command to perform the remainder of the
    clean operations requested.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition
    v7.0.4 who try to perform an fteCleanAgent command for an agent
    which has a transfer request pending on the agent's command
    queue and the transfer has programs specified to run before or
    after the transfer has completed.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    During the clean agent process, the agent's command queue was
    scanned and any message present was read.
    If a transfer request was present, it was loaded and read. In
    the process of parsing the message, if the parser discovered a
     call-out option then it would check the agent type to see if
    program invocation was supported. To get the agent type required
    the parser to access the Agent runtime instance.  This was not
    available when performing a clean agent, causing the error.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
