Error description

  • When installing fix pack MQ v9.0 on Solaris, following
    unnecessary ICU libraries are being displayed during post
    installation which may mislead the users to think these files
    are being installed on their system, which are not.
    
     /opt/mqm/lib64/libicudata.so.55.1
     /opt/mqm/lib64/libicudata.so.55
     /opt/mqm/lib64/libicudata.so
     /opt/mqm/lib64/libicuuc.so.55.1
     /opt/mqm/lib64/libicuuc.so.55
     /opt/mqm/lib64/libicuuc.so
     /opt/mqm/lib64/libicui18n.so.55.1
     /opt/mqm/lib64/libicui18n.so.55
     /opt/mqm/lib64/libicui18n.so
    

Local fix

  • The warnings and error messages are *not* an indication that the
    fix pack installation failed, so they can be can be safely
    ignored.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users installing MQ fixpack on Solaris.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Solaris SPARC, Solaris x86-64
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The ICU libraries listed are no longer required. Since these
    exist in base levels of the product, they will be removed during
    fixpack installation by post installation script. The post
    installation script displayed these files to users while
    removing which may have mislead users to think these libraries
    are being installed
    

Problem conclusion

  • The MQ Solaris post installation script has been modified to
    avoid displaying unnecessary ICU libraries during fix pack
    installation.
