Error description

  • While the Pure System storehouse shows that both MQ 8.0.0.4 and
    MQ 8.0.0.2 packages are available, when attempting to deploy a
    pattern using MQ 8.0.0.4, MQ 8.0.0.2 is deployed instead.
    Trace of this issue confirms that mq-8.0.0.2.tar.gz is
    downloaded from the storehouse and installed.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This affects users of IBM Pure Application System version
    2.1.2.0, and version 2.2.0.0 and later fix packs, who wish to
    install the IBM MQ Pure Application System pattern-types at
    version 1.0.0.2 or earlier.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Because of an interface change in IBM Pure Application System
    2.1.2.0, and in 2.2.0.0 and greater, installation and upgrade of
    IBM MQ at the latest maintenance level contained in the
    pattern-type failed. The installation appeared to succeed, but
    IBM MQ 8.0.0.2 was installed and the subsequent fixpack update
    was not applied.
    
    For IBM Pure Application System releases earlier than 2.1.2.0
    and at version 2.1.2.1, all versions of IBM MQ contained in the
    pattern-type can successfully be installed. Maintenance can also
    be successfully applied to running pattern instances.
    
    For IBM Pure Application System 2.1.2.0, 2.2.0.0 and later, only
    IBM MQ 8.0.0.2 could be successfully installed. It was not
    possible to install later versions e.g., 8.0.0.4, or to apply
    maintenance to running pattern instances.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The MQ Pure System Pattern has been updated so that the
    maintenance lifecycle processing now checks for correct object
    type.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    The fix is targeted for delivery in the following PTFs:

    The latest available maintenance can be obtained from
    'WebSphere MQ Recommended Fixes'
    http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=171&uid=swg27006037
