Error description

  • When displaying the RVERSION channel status property via DISPLAY
    CHSTATUS for an MQ managed V9 .Net Client Connecting to a Queue
    Manager the version of the remote MQ code identified by RVERSION
    is incorrectly showing as (08000000).  The DISPLAY CHSTATUS
    output shows as below:
    AMQ8417: Display Channel Status details.
       CHANNEL(SYSTEM.DEF.SVRCONN)                CHLTYPE(SVRCONN)
       RVERSION(08000000)                      RPRODUCT(MQNM)
    
    If APAR IT20932 is included then the maintenance level
    information is omitted in the RVERSION for V9 and will be
    displayed as RVERSION(09000000).
    
    If APAR IT07782 is included then the maintenance level
    information is omitted in the RVERSION for V8 and V7.5 and will
    be displayed as RVERSION(07500000) and RVERSION(08000000).
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of managed .Net client applications attempting to find the
    RVERSION property of a channel.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The V9 managed .Net client did not have the correct version
    coded and so passed the old value to the queue manager on
    connection, causing the queue manager's channel status to
    display the RVERSION as RVERSION(08000000).
    
    With IT20932 in place, the RVERSION value for V9 was corrected
    as RVERSION(09000000) but this did not include the maintenance
    level information.
    
    Similarly for V8 and V7.5, APAR IT07782 did not include the
    maintenance level information in RVERSION.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The managed .Net client code now passes the correct version
    information including maintenance level to the queue manager on
    connection, so the RVERSION of a connected channel displays
    correctly.
    
    It should be noted that the ordering of the digits in 7.5 is
    corrected. A 7.5 client will now report RVERSION(070500xx),
    where xx is the fix pack level, instead of RVERSION(07500000)
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    The fix is targeted for delivery in the following PTFs:
    
    Version    Maintenance Level
    v7.5       7.5.0.9
    v8.0       8.0.0.8
    v9.0 CD    9.0.4
