APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When running following command:
    STRMQMMQSC SRCMBR(<source_mbr>) SRCFILE(<lib/file>)
      MQMNAME(<qmname>)
    
    The MQSC commands inside THE <source_mbr> are completed
    successfully.
    The output is successfully saved into the spoolfile.
    However the STRMQMMQSC command returns following error:
    
      Error report generated for MQSC command process   (AMQ8298)
      Error found on STRMQMMQSC command.
    

Local fix

  • Use the RUNMQSC.PGM in the QShell environment:
    
     1. Start the QShell environment by issuing "qsh" from a
        command line
     2. In the QShell environment enter
         "/QSYS.LIB/QMQM.LIB/RUNMQSC.PGM <qmname>" on the command
         line
     3. Then enter MQSC commands interactively
    
    Or if you have the MQSC commands saved into an ifs file:
    
     1. Start the QShell environment by issuing "qsh" from a
        command line
     2. In the QShell environment enter
        "/QSYS.LIB/QMQM.LIB/RUNMQSC.PGM qmname </path_to/filename"
    
       replacing qmname with your queue manager name and
       /path_to/filename with the path to your file and its
       name in IFS format
    
       so for example if your queue manager is called "QM1" and
       your file is in /QIBM/UserData/mqm and called myfile.mqsc
       enter:
       "/QSYS.LIB/QMQM.LIB/RUNMQSC.PGM QM1
           </QIBM/UserData/mqm/myfile.mqsc"
    
    Or
    monitor spoolfile output to check that all of the MQSC commands
    have completed successfully.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    WMQ users on IBM i attempting to use STRMQMMQSC
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    IBM iSeries
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    After upgrading to MQ V8, an attempt to run STRMQMMQSC returns
    with error message AMQ8298 even though the MQSC commands
    complete successfully.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The post processing code for STRMQMMQSC which generates a
    successful or not successful message is not working properly. MQ
    code has been modified to generate appropriate messages based on
    the results from running the MQSC commands.
