  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In an LDAP Object Authority Manager (OAM) configuration when a
    user tries to create an authority record with 'crt' authority
    for valid user/group, the command fails with unknown entity
    error and AMQ8871 error is reported.
    
    For example:
    
    set authrec profile('qname') objtype(queue)
    principal('CN=xxxx,OU=xxxx,OU=xxxx,DC=xxxx,DC=xxxx')
    authadd(crt)
         1 : set authrec profile('qname') objtype(queue)
    principal('CN=xxxx,OU=xxxx,OU=xxxx,DC=xxxx,DC=xxxx')
    authadd(crt)
    AMQ8871E: Entity, principal or group not known.
    

Local fix

  • Use the setmqaut command instead of the SET AUTHREC MQSC or PCF
    command.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users using LDAP for authorization, who attempt to add an
    authority record with authority 'crt' using the SET AUTHREC
    runmqsc command or MQCMD_SET_AUTH_REC PCF command.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    In an LDAP setup when setting an authority record for a
    principal/group with 'crt' authority, a lookup for principal SID
    was incorrectly performed on the localhost by the queue
    manager's command server process. Since the user details are
    stored on the LDAP server, the search failed with unknown entity
    error.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The queue manager command server code has been modified to look
    for principal/group details on LDAP server as expected.
