Error description

  • Some of the IBM MQ Managed File Transfer (MFT) command line
    messages that were added under APAR IT22423 and further updated
    under IT24817 contain grammatical errors in the message
    explanation or user action text.  This includes messages that
    contained the following text:
    "An WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer"
    For example:
    BFGCL0764I Explanation:
    An WebSphere MQ Managed File Transfer administrator issued the
    fteModifyAgent command that resulted in the agent being
    configured to run as a Windows service.
    In addition, some messages in the user action text did not
    contain a space between the words "MQ" and "product".  For
    BFGCL0577E User action:
    Modify the compressed file so that it conforms to the required
    format. Refer to the WebSphere MQproduct documentation for
    further information. Rerun the ftecfg command.
