Error description

  • <p>When issuing 'makehaprimary' command on a secondary node, the
    command fails reporting that the secondary node couldn't be made
    primary.
    
    >  makehaprimary QM1
    >
    >  AMQ6682E: The appliance could not be made the primary for the
    queue manager.
    
    However, the 'makehaprimary' call does succeed after the AMQ6682
    error was reported and the secondary node will be made the
    primary node, despite the reported error.</p>
