APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When running the command runmqsc with queue manager name with
    MQ V9 on HP-UX, the following error message is output:
    
    No entry for terminal type "xterm"
    
    Even when the environment variable TERM is set to "xterm", the
    issue persists. This message does not affect the operation of
    the runmqsc console.
    

Local fix

  • Set the environment variable MQ_OVERRIDE_LIBEDIT_LOAD to TRUE to
    prevent loading libedit - this will remove the command
    completion and recall facility from the runmqsc console.
    
    Alternatively, this informational error message may be safely
    disregarded.
