Local fix

  • If the queue manager name is mangled, e.g. MY!QM, then there is
    no workaround.  If the queue manager name is not mangled then an
    alternative is to use -1, -2, -3, 4 instead of -i, -q, -p, -a.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who are asked by IBM Support to use the amqspdbg command
    may encounter this problem.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A change in the way that queue manager details are looked up
    internally caused the amqspdbg command to fail to resolve
    mangled names.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was modified so that queue managers with mangled names
    are found correctly.
