  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You dump mq objects from a remote queuemanager with the command
    dmpmqcfg like this:
    
      dmpmqcfg -m <localQMGR> -a -r <remoteQMGR>
    
    When the MQ Telemetry package has been installed on the REMOTE
    queue manager this generates an event on the LOCAL queue manager
    where the dmpmqcfg command is being issued. The event being
    generated is about opening the SYSTEM.MQXR.COMMAND.QUEUE.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users using dmpmqcfg to dump remote queue manager configuration
    using a local queue manager with MQXR component installed on
    both the local and remote systems.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A logic error in the dmpmqcfg tool meant that PCF requests made
    by the dmpmqcfg command were not correctly forwarded to the
    SYSTEM.MQXR.COMMAND.QUEUE on the remote queue manager.
    
    This meant that dmpmqcfg would either incorrectly report MQXR
    information from the local queue manager (if MQXR was installed
    locally), or report no MQXR information as part of its output.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The dmpmqcfg tool has been modified so that requests for MQXR
    configuration from a remote queue manager are correctly routed
    to that queue manager.
    
    In order for this operation to be successful, this fix must be
    applied to both the local installation where dmpmqcfg is being
    run, and the remote target queue manager.
