Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • During installation on Linux platforms, the MQ RPM installation
    packages invoke the mqconfig utility using nohup. In some
    scenarios, this can cause the installation process to hang if
    the installation is run from a script in non-interactive mode
    

Local fix

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

Problem summary

    USERS AFFECTED:

    x86, Linux on zSeries, Solaris SPARC, Solaris x86-64
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:

    incorrectly used with the shell(e.g. sh) command, causing the
    operation to block.
