Abstract

MQM400 SHIP NEW PTF EXIT PROGRAM AMQIPTFX

Error Description

A new PTF exit program will be shipped with the marker PTF which
will check whether WebSphere MQ is fully quiesced before        
applying or removing PTFs.                                      

Problem Summary

****************************************************************
USERS AFFECTED:                                                
All users of WebSphere MQ for iSeries                          
                                                               
Platforms affected:

****************************************************************
PROBLEM SUMMARY:                                                
A fixpack or refresh pack is a set of PTFs for products 5724H72
and 5724L26, which can be ordered by reference to a single PTF  
known as a group PTF.                                          
For 5724L26 (Java/JMS client) the PTFs can be applied          
irrespective of whether WebSphere MQ is quiesced or running.    
For 5724H72 (WMQ Server) the PTFs should not be applied unless  
WebSphere MQ has been fully quiesced, using the procedure      
detailed in the Special Instructions for the 'marker' PTF. This
requirement is not automatically enforced.                      

Problem Conclusion

PROBLEM CONCLUSION:                                            
A new PTF exit program (AMQIPTFX) is being shipped. This exit  
program will be invoked during APYPTF and RMVPTF, and where    
applicable will refuse the operation when MQ jobs are running  
or subsystem QMQM is active. If MQ is fully quiesced, and the  
PTF state will change from not_applied to applied (or vice-    
versa) then a tidy-up of MQ shared memory will also take        
place.
