APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When "Prepare WebSphere MQ Wizard" is run for the first time
    after MQ installation and if the user cancels the wizard in the
    first page itself, then the wizard configures the MQ Windows
    service "IBM WebSphere MQ (<Installationname>) with the default
    MQ userid MUSR_MQADMIN and starts the service anyway.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who uses an alternate tool to configure MQ Service instead
    of using the Prepare MQ Wizard.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A user has configured the MQ Service using an alternate tool
    instead of using the 'Prepare MQ Wizard' and they later start
    the Prepare MQ Wizard unintentionally. Clicking cancel on the
    wizard still reconfigures the MQ Service to run under the
    default MQ userid MUSR_MQADMIN, changing the users configuration
    unintentionally.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code is modified such that if the wizard is cancelled in the
    first page itself then the process will exit without configuring
    the MQ Service.
