Error description

  • From MQ 9.1.4 CD onwards, it is possible for the
    ibm.com_IBM_MQ_Advanced-9.x.x.swidtag file to become corrupted

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of IBM MQ 9.1.4 or higher, including 9.2.0.x LTS releases,
    who have installed one or more IBM MQ Advanced components and
    use the IBM License Management Tool (ILMT).
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A programming error in the IBM MQ installer logic meant that it
    was possible for the bm.com_IBM_MQ_Advanced-9.x.x.swidtag file to be generated
    with incorrect content, which meant that the file could not be
    successfully read by ILMT.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM MQ installer has been modified to generate the tag file
    correctly.
    
    For IBM MQ 9.2.0.x LTS installations, the problem can be
    corrected at fix pack install time by the fix pack installer at
    the level listed in the target section below.
