Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users who issue IBM MQ Managed File Transfer
    commands.	
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    After applying the IBM MQ V8.0.0.9 Fix Pack, some MQ Managed
    File Transfer commands that fail display an error message to the
    user that contains the string "$PRODUCT_NAME$".  For example:
    
      BFGCL0002E:  A messaging problem prevented the command from
    completing successfully. The $PRODUCT_NAME$ completion code was
    <insert_0>, and the reason code was <insert_1>. A connection
    could not be established to queue manager <insert_2>, on host
    ''<insert_3>'' using port <insert_4> and channel <insert_5>.
    
    This issue only affects select informational, warning and error
    messages for Managed File Transfer commands that begin with
    "BFGCL".
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Managed File Transfer command messages have been updated to
    print "WebSphere MQ" in the message text and not $PRODUCT_NAME$,
    as they did prior to MQ V8.0.0.9.
