Error description

  • When generating MQCFST string data blocks in PCF reply messages
    the command server was setting a CCSID (a number that goes
    alongside character data, to express what codepage it is from)
    that had been taken from the system's locale.
    
    The CCSID from the system's locale was not convertible to/from
    the queue manager's CCSID. The command server should have been
    setting the CCSID in the PCF reply message to the queue
    manager's CCSID.
    
    The problem was first seen by a user of the dmpmqcfg program,
    because it could not convert the character data from the CCSID
    contained in the PCF message.  But in principle this problem
    affects any program consuming PCF responses from a command
    server on a queue manager hosted on a similar system, where the
    default locale gives CCSID 949 or any other character set that
    will not convert to the CCSID in use by the program consuming
    the messages.
    
    In this case the dmpmqcfg program consuming the messages
    expected them to convert successfully to the Windows ASCII
    character set CCSID 437, but they did not.  The AMQ6047 error
    messages were therefore written to record this.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This problem could affect any program consuming PCF responses
    from a command server on a queue manager hosted on a similar
    system, where the default locale gives CCSID 949 or any other
    character set that will not convert to the CCSID in use by the
    program consuming the messages.

    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When generating PCF reply messages the command server was
    setting a CCSID (a number that goes alongside character data, to
    express what codepage it is from) that had been taken from the
    system's locale.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The MQ product code has been fixed so that, when generating PCF
    reply messages, the command server now sets the correct CCSID
    (that is, the Queue Manager's CCSID).
