IZ12795: INQUIRECHANNEL PCF COMMAND WITH CHANNELTYPE PARAMETER DOES NOT RETURN COMPLETE CHANNEL DETAILS, ONLY THE CHANNEL DESCRIPTION.

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • InquireChannel PCF command with ChannelType parameter does not
    return all of the requested channel details. Only the first
    requested channel attribute is returned, or the description in
    the case of MQIACF_ALL.
    

Local fix

  • As a temporary workaround then the customer could consider
    reordering  the PCF message so that the ChannelType
    is specified before the ChannelAttrs.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who have written PCF applications that use
    MQCMD_INQUIRE_CHANNEL, and that specify an explicit ChannelType
    AFTER the ChannelAttrs in the PCF message.
    
    Platforms affected:
    All Distributed (iSeries, all Unix and Windows)
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    When parsing the PCF Inquire Channel command then the command
    server is overwriting the number of attributes requested by the
    ChannelAttrs parameter when processing the ChannelType
    attribute. Thus if the ChannelType attribute is specified after
    the ChannelAttrs attribute then the number of channel
    attributes becomes incorrect (i.e 1).
    

Problem conclusion

  • The parsing of the InquireChannel command was corrected not to
    use the same variable when parsing the ChannelAttrs and
    ChannelType structures.
