Error description

  • MQ 7.5 32-bit client application either hangs or causes an FDC
    to be created when using a CCDT
    file from MQ v9.
    
    If a hang occurs then trace of the client may show this call
    repeated in the trace file:
    
     --}! rrxGetFirstChannelDef rc=rrcW_TRUNCATED
    
    An FDC may be seen which is similar to this:
    
    | Probe Id          :- RM696020
    | Major Errorcode   :- rrcE_FILE_CORRUPT
    | Minor Errorcode   :- OK
    | Probe Type        :- MSGAMQ9517
    | Probe Severity    :- 2
    | Probe Description :- AMQ9517: File damaged.
    | FDCSequenceNumber :- 0
    | Arith1            :- 2078 (0x81e)
    | Arith2            :- 1946 (0x79a)

Local fix

  • Use a CCDT from a queue manager that is older than MQ v9
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of IBM MQ v7.5 32-bit clients who wish to use a CCDT
    generated on a v9 queue manager may be affected by this issue.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    APAR IT11547 introduced the ability to use a CCDT file on an MQ
    client, even if the CCDT file had been created on a later
    version of MQ.  If a 32-bit MQ client tries to use a CCDT
    generated on an IBM MQ v9 server then it may hang or create an
    FDC due an incorrect length calculation.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The length calculation which caused the problem was corrected in
    the MQ client logic.
