  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When authorizations are properly set for a profile type of
    rqmname, the amqoamd utility reports no MQ authorization
    (None).
    However, the dmpmqaut command reports the correct MQ
    authorizations given.  For example:
    .
    If this setmqaut command is issued:
    
     setmqaut -m QMgrName -n RemoteQMgrName -t rqmname -g
    group_name +put +setall
    
    The "amqoamd -m QMgrName" command reports:
    
      ObjectType:  QMgrName
      ObjectName:  RemoteQMgrName
        User name:   group_name@hostname
        Authorities: None (0x00000208)
    
    The "dmpmquat -m QMgrName" command reports:
    
     profile:     QMgrName
     object type: rqmname
     entity:      group_name@hostname
     entity type: group
     authority:   put setall
    

Local fix

  • Use the dmpmquat command to verify authorizations for "rqmname"
    profile types.
    If the amqoamd utility is being used to dump the MQ
    authorizations to a file, you have two options:
    
    1. Manually modify the setmqaut commands for "rqmname" profiles
    in the file output.
    
    2. Use the dmpmqcfg utility to dump the MQ authorizations to a
    file.  For example:
    
     dmpmqcfg -m QMgrName -x authrec -o setmqaut >
    /tmp/file_name.out
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of the amqoamd command who wish to display authority
    records with
    an object type of remote queue manager name are affected by this
    issue.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A logic error in the code for amqoamd meant that the authority
    flags
    for records with an object type of remote queue manager name
    were not
    displayed correctly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been modified so that authority flags for the
    remote queue manager name are correctly displayed when the
    amqoamd
    program is run.
