Error description

  • When deploying a single instance queue manager pattern on Pure

    set, the deploy fails as the path to the MQ log and data
    directories is not valid.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This problem affects users of the IBM MQ Virtual System Pattern
    Type V8 who use single instance MQ pattern deployments where MQ
    logs and data are stored on a shared filesystems such as GPFS
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    AIX, Linux on x86-64
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When a pattern was deployed for a single instance Queue Manager
    using the "Use existing MQ queue manager data directory" option,
    /qmgrs/ was incorrectly added to the MQ configuration path,
    which invalidated the location of the MQ log and data
    directories.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM MQ Virtual System Pattern Type scripts have been
    modified to ensure that /qmgrs/ is no longer added to the MQ log
    and data directory path for single instance Queue Manager
    pattern deployments which use the "Use existing MQ queue manager
    data directory" option
