APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a CRTMQM is used on IBMi, and the MQMDIRP(*DFT) parameter
    is explicitly specified, the
    Data directory is created in /QIBM/UserData/mqm instead of the
    default location of
    /QIBM/UserData/mqm/qmgrs.
    If MQMDIRP(*DFT) is not specified, the command works as
    intended, ie creating the Data directory in the default location
    of /QIBM/UserData/mqm/qmgrs.
    MQMDIRP('/anotherlocation') continues to work as intended. Only
    MQMDIRP(*DFT) is incorrect.
    

Local fix

  • If the intention is to use the default Data location of
    /QIBM/UserData/mqm/qmgrs then DO NOT specify MQMDIRP(*DFT) on
    the CRTMQM command or type anything in the MQMDIRP field if
    prompting the command.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    IBM MQ users who are creating a queue manager using the CRTMQM
    CL command
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    IBM iSeries
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The special value of *DFT on the MQMDIRP parameter of the CRTMQM
    CL command is incorrectly using /QIBM/UserData/mqm for the Data
    location instead of /QIBM/UserData/mqm/qmgrs. This only occurs
    if the MQMDIRP(*DFT) is specified explicitly on the command, eg
    CRTMQM MQMNAME(QMNAME) MQMDIRP(*DFT)
    or the command is prompted and the value of *DFT for the MQMDIRP
    parameter is overtyped with *DFT
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM i CL command CRTMQM has been modifed to use
    /QIBM/UserData/mqm/qmgrs as the special value for *DFT for the
    MQMDIRP parameter.
    
    It should also be noted that if MQMDIRP is explicitly used on
    the CRTMQM command, even if to specify *DFT, the DataPath stanza
    is created for that queue manager in the mqs.ini configuration
    file.
    
    More information on DataPath and its usage can be obtained in
    the IBM MQ Knowledge Center.
