APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You have developed a script to install the base MQ V8 product
    and find that the installation appears to "hang" and does not
    complete.
    Your "ps -ef" output shows multiple instances of the mqconfig
    script running on your system.
    
    This problem  is also likely to occur when running the mqconfig
    script in the background.
    
    This problem is also applicable to MQ 7.5.
    

Local fix

  • Install MQV8.0.0.4(base installation package) to resolve the
    hang problem or
    Install MQ  by running the rpm commands on the command line.

    USERS AFFECTED:

    script in the background.
    
    
    Platforms affected:

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    This problem occurred because the interactive option ("i") was
