Error description

  • On IBMi when a queue manager is created with a non-default data
    directory location, i.e. not in
    /QIBM/UserData/mqm/qmgrs/<queuemanagername>
    if a stash file is created it is generated in the default
    location instead of under the queue manager data directory in a
    sub-directory called ssl.
    It is incorrectly created in
    /QIBM/UserData/mqm/qmgrs/<queuemanagername>/ssl
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    MQ users on IBM i who create a queue manager with a non-default
    data location and need to utilize SSL
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    IBM iSeries
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A queue manager's data directory can be created in a non-default
    location by specifying the path on the MQMDIRP parameter of
    CRTMQM. When such a queue manager is created on IBM i, and an
    attempt to configure the SSLKEYRPWD for the key repository is
    made, the Stash.sth file is attempted to be created in the
    default data location, ie /QIBM/UserData/mqm/qmgrs//ssl. This
    fails with an AMQ6239 error as the default /ssl directory does
    not exist.
    

Problem conclusion

  • IBM MQ code has been modified to allow for non-default data
    directory locations when generating the Stash.sth file.
