    used in the MQ data directory path and MQ data is removed when
    updating the IBM MQ Virtual System Instance.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This affects users of IBM Pure Application System
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    By default the MQ Data directory includes the deployment id so
    that Queue Manager log directories are separated for each
    deployed instanced. On deletion of the Virtual Instance the MQ
    data tree is deleted as part of the clean-up.
    

Problem conclusion

  • IBM MQ Pattern now includes an option so that the user may elect
    to manage their MQ data directory manually. If is option is
    selected, then the IBM MQ data directory will be set to the
    value specified in the pattern (the deployment Id will not be
    used) and the GPFS directory structures will not be deleted when
    the Virtual Instance is deleted.
