APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • WebSphere MQ utility program runmqtrm (Run MQ Trigger Monitor)
    determines that a message it reads from its input queue is not a
    correctly formatted trigger message. It sends the message to the
    queue manager's Dead Letter Queue, if one is defined.
    
    If the message was Persistent it could be put as a
    Non-Persistent message on the Dead Letter Queue.
    
    This was found when the user mistakenly ran runmqtrm against
    their application queue rather than an initiation queue (INITQ).
    

Local fix

  • Ensure that runmqtrm is only run against a INITQ which will
    contain only validly-formed trigger messages.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of runmqtrm, where they might supply the wrong queue name
    via the -q switch on the command line.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    runmqtrm was not preserving various message descriptor fields
    when putting the Dead Letter Queue message.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The product source code for runmqtrm has been corrected to
    preserve message descriptor fields when putting the Dead Letter
    Queue message.
