Error description

  • In MQ v8.0.0.5/9.0.0.0, the ALTER CHANNEL runmqsc command for
    sender channel with parameter PROPCTL fails with AMQ8405 syntax
    error.
    
    For example:
    ALTER CHANNEL(SYSTEM.DEF.SENDER) CHLTYPE(SDR) PROPCTL(COMPAT)
    
    Results in the following error:
    
    AMQ8405: Syntax error detected at or near end of command segment
    below:
    ALTER CHANNEL(SYSTEM.DEF.SENDER) CHLTYPE(SDR) PROPCTL
    

Local fix

  • Change the PROPCTL attribute using MQ Explorer or a PCF command
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    All MQ v8.0.0.5 and MQ v9 users will be affected.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Updates to the ALTER CHANNEL mqsc command  specification for
    sender channels at 8.0.0.5 unintentionally disabled the PROPCTL
    attribute entry, which meant the queue manager reported a syntax
    error if PROPCTL was specified when altering a sender channel
    definition.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The ALTER CHANNEL mqsc command specification has been corrected
    to permit the PROPCTL attribute for sender channels.
