Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The amqicfil utility script with non zero return code when
    executed manually and the queue manager
    commands (e.g. strmqm) fail with unexpected errors after
    installing an MQ interim fix onto a system with a non-English
    language configuration.
    

Local fix

  • Set LANG=C and LC_ALL=C before executing amqicfil
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users using the amqicfil script to install MQ interim fixes in
    non-English environments.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    This problem occurred because the amqicfil script was not able
    to parse the output
    generated in Japanese by the "file" command.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The amqicfil script has been modified to set its environment
    locale to "C" so that the output of  the "file" command will be
    generated only in English.
