Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    IBM i MFT users who install fixpack then decide to
    rollback to
    Platforms affected:
    IBM iSeries
    The MFT install code via PTFs was incorrectly removing from the ../mft/lib
    directory during a fixpack uninstall and not restoring it back.
    This resulted in the file being missing after the fixpack
    uninstall and various MFT commands not working.

Problem conclusion

  • The PTF install code has been modified to correctly remove and
    restore the file during
    a fixpack uninstall.
    The fix is targeted for delivery in the following PTFs:
    Version    Maintenance Level
    v9.0 CD    9.0.3
    v9.0 LTS
    The latest available FTE maintenance can be obtained from
    'Fix List for WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition 7.0'
    The latest available MQ maintenance can be obtained from
    'WebSphere MQ Recommended Fixes'
    If the maintenance level is not yet available information on
    its planned availability can be found in 'WebSphere MQ
    Planned Maintenance Release Dates'
