Local fix

  • Modify the isa.xml file to remove references to amqicdir.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users using runmqras to collect diagnostic data.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A coding error in the amqicdir utility meant that the files
    mqccred and mqccred_r were renamed in /var/mqm/exits when
    amqicdir was called with the -a flag. The runmqras utility
    invokes amqicdir -a to obtain diagnostic information, and
    calling amqicdir -a is not intended to modify the installation.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The amqicdir logic has been modified so that files mqccred and
    mqccred_r are not renamed when amqicdir is called with the -a
    flag.
