Error description

  • This apar documents the provision of a service parm to avoid
    extra checking in V800 that causes FFSTs to be generated when
    a client sends invalid MQOPEN flows to a queue-manager.
    .
    Additional symptoms:
     +CSQX053E CSQ1 CSQXFFST Error information recorded in CSQSNAP
      data set
     +CSQX504E CSQ1 CSQXRESP Local protocol error,
      channel CSQ2.TO.CSQ1
      type=0000000B data=00000000
     +CSQX599E CSQ1 CSQXRESP Channel CSQ2.TO.CSQ1 ended abnormally
      connection
     .
     Eyecatchers in the CSQSNAP DD include:
      XFFSrriBadDataReceived
      XFFSrriConvertValidate
      TSH received
    .
    The Client problem is described by IV36766.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of WebSphere MQ for z/OS Version 8 *
    *                 Release 0 Modification 0.                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When a Java client at version V7.0.0.0  *
    *                      connects to a V8.0.0 z/OS queue manager *
    *                      an MQOPEN of a queue will fail with     *
    *                      'CSQX504E Local protocol error'.        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The Java V7.0.0.0 code does not send a valid flow for the MQOPEN
    API call. This invalid data is tolerated by V7.0.1 (and V7.1.0
    with toleration PTF enabled) queue managers, but at V8.0.0,
    additional tests will detect the invalid flow and terminate the
    channel connection, reporting a CSQX504E error. In addition an
    FFST is captured on the z/OS server side indicating
    "rriBadDataReceived".
    
    This issue is addressed in the Java Client Fix Pack 1
    (V7.0.0.1 and above), but it may be impractical for a customer
    to deploy the client-side fix throughout their enterprise.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Following the application of the PTF for this APAR, customers
    may elect to enable less stringent checking of MQOPEN flows from
    clients to prevent the failure from occurring on the server.
    
    This checking will only be disabled when activated using the
    appropriate CHISERVP service parameter under the direction of
    the WebSphere MQ Service team. Without this activation, the
    server behavior will remain unchanged.
    
    Please contact WebSphere MQ Service if you wish to activate this
    capability.
