Error description

  • After upgrading to MQ 8.0.0.5 or 8.0.0.6 fix pack
    MQRC_NOT_AUTHORIZED error events are generated  for the user
    account under which the connecting application runs.
    Additionally, on Windows platform AMQ8075 (Authorization failed
    because the SID for entity '<insert one>' cannot be obtained)
    errors are reported in the queue manager logs.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users using applications that pass MQCSP user for authenticating
    a queue manager connection.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    This change was introduced in fix pack 8.0.0.5 by APAR IT12825.
    
    A logic error within this change caused the authorization error
    to be incorrectly reported for valid credentials, however the
    connection attempt would still succeed if the supplied
    credentials were valid.
    

Problem conclusion

  • MQ code is updated such that the authentication/validation is
    performed only when appropriate.
