Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    The APAR affects user of:
    
    - WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition V7.0.4.5 onwards
    - IBM MQ Managed File Transfer V8.0.0.2 onwards
    - IBM MQ Managed File Transfer V9.0
    
    who have agents running on z/OS that process managed transfer
    requests to process Generation Data Group (GDG) datasets.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    z/OS
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When a user attempted to transfer a Generation Data Group (GDG)
    dataset which did not exist, the transfer completed returning a
    "Successful, with no files transferred" message. As the GDG
    dataset does not exist, the transfer was expected to fail with a
    failure return message.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition product, and the MQ MQ
    Managed File Transfer component, have been modified so that when
    a Generation Data Group (GDG) dataset which does not exist is
    attempted to be transferred, the transfer request now fails with
    the following return message:
    
    "Failed - BFGIO0001E: File "//<GDG_Member>" does not exist."
