Error description

  • A test system running on Ubuntu Linux encountered an issue where

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who use the "crtmqenv" or "setmqenv" programs to change
    their environments primary MQ installation.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Linux on x86-64, Linux on x86
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    If working with a PATH environment variable over a certain
    length and already contains an MQ installation path, issuing a
    "crtmqenv" command may cause the PATH environment variable to
    become corrupted.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The function used to copy the strings used when generating the
    PATH variable would work incorrectly if the total length of the
    PATH variable exceeded a certain length.
    
    The function that is used while creating the string has been
    updated to address this issue.
