APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • A newly created qmgr on MQ V8 has the following in the
    blockaddr.ini file for the queue manager:
    
    ChlAuth = Disabled
    
    even though the default chlauth status of the V8 qmgr is
    Enabled.
    
    Similarly, if the chlatuh status of the qmgr it changed, this
    change is not reflected correctly on the blockaddr.ini file.
