  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • mqs.ini contains stanzas that refer to unavailable locations in
    filesystem.  FDC records are written by the WebSphere MQ
    Explorer.  These FDC records are not indications of a product
    defect.  They should not be written.  The visible function of
    the WebSphere MQ Explorer is correct and is not changed by this
    APAR.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of WebSphere MQ Explorer on a machine with an installation
    including an mqs.ini file, when this file contains filesystem
    locations that are not accessible.
    
    Platforms affected:
    Linux (x86),Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    When attempting to read from a directory named in mqs.ini,
    certain OS return codes were not being correctly handled by
    WebSphere MQ code.  Although the visible function of the
    WebSphere MQ Explorer is correct, the resulting FDC files are
    not needed, and can give cause for concern when none is
    necessary.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has been added to stop writing FDC records in certain
    situations where they are not needed.
