APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • MQ command server reporting MQRC_HANDLE_NOT_AVAILABLE (2017)
    indicating a handle leak within the amqpcsea process.
    The command server would typically have written a significant
    number of messages to the dead letter queue before this error is
    raised.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users sending badly formed PCF requests to the command server.
    
    Platforms affected:
    All Distributed (iSeries, all Unix and Windows)
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The command server attempts to open the ReplyToQ identified in
    the input PCF message before validating the PCF message. If the
    PCF message is of the wrong message type  (i.e. not a request
    message) then the ReplyToQ is not closed correctly leading to
    the command server leaking queue handles.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The command server is changed so that if a ReplyToQ is opened
    then it is always closed.
