Error description

  • MQ version 8.0.0.2 (from pattern type version 1.0.0.2) cannot be
    selected in the virtual system pattern editor when MQ FixPack
    pattern type version 1.0.0.6 (or later) is added to the PureApp
    catalog.  The earliest version of MQ that is displayed is
    8.0.0.4.  This is true even when the later FixPack pattern type
    is disabled.
    

Local fix

  • Remove all later versions of the MQ pattern type from the
    PureApplication System catalog to re-enable the hidden MQ base
    version in the pattern editor.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users of the IBM MQ Virtual System Pattern
    Type 1.0.0.2 and later..
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Linux on x86-64, AIX
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    MQ version 8.0.0.2 (from pattern type version 1.0.0.2) cannot be
    selected in the virtual system pattern editor when MQ FixPack
    pattern type version 1.0.0.6 (or later) is added to the PureApp
    catalog.  The earliest version of MQ that is displayed is
    8.0.0.4.  This is true even when the later FixPack pattern type
    is disabled.
    
    A defect in the MQ Pattern Type metadata prevented the older MQ
    base version (8.0.0.2) from being displayed in the PureApp
    pattern editor when a newer base version of MQ (8.0.0.4) was
    loaded into the PureApp catalog.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The defect has been addressed so that the older MQ base version
    is displayed in the pattern editor when the newer FixPack
    version is disabled in the PureApp catalog
