Error description

  • MQ messages are sent from the mainframe (CCSID 500) to Solaris
    (CCSID 1208) without conversion.  Conversion takes place on the
    Solaris' sender channel when the message is sent to another
    Solaris queue manager.  After the Solaris queue managers were
    upgraded to MQ V9.0, the application was no longer able to
    consume the converted message from the destination queue due to
    unexpected characters.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of IBM MQ V9 employing conversion from EBCDIC to other
    character tables.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The EBCDIC NL character (0x15) was incorrectly converted to
    0xC285 by default instead of the expected LF value 0x0A.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM MQ data conversion routines have been changed to
    correctly convert EBCDIC NL (0x15) to LF (0x0A) by default.
