APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When the MQ client attempts to use an empty mqclient.ini
    file on Windows, MQRC_UNEXPECTED_ERROR is returned.
    

Local fix

  • Ensure mqclient.ini is not empty, for example by including a
    comment (by using # at the start of the line).
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    MQ client users on Windows.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When MQ attempted to read mqclient.ini on Windows
    it would check if the file was empty, and return an error if
    it was. This isn't done on any other platform, and the check was
    unnecessary since it is possible for normal operation
    to continue with an empty mqclient.ini.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The check for an empty mqclient.ini has been removed
    so that MQ on Windows will continue if an empty file is present
