Error description

  • At WMQ v8.0.0.4,
    DMPMQMCFG EXPTYPE(*AUTHREC) OUTPUT(*MQSC) to a file will
    generate incorrect output records.
    
    The dmpmqmcfg command will run to completion. STRMQMMQSC
    option(*verify) will not find any errors. But actually running
    the mqsc data will show joblog:
    AMQ8298 Error report generated for MQSC command process.
    CPF0001 Error found on STRMQMMQSC command.
    
    In the joblog of the RUNMQSC job we see several records like
    : SET AUTHREC +
    : PROFILE('self') +
    : GROUP('QMQM') +
    : OBJTYPE(QMGR) +
    :
    AUTHADD(ALTUSR,CHG,CONNECT,DLT,DSP,INQ,SET,SETALL,SETID,CTRL,SYS
    TEM)
    AMQ8871: Entity, principal or group not known.
    
    as profile QMQM is not a group profile, but individual (or mq
    'principal')
    

Local fix

  • In MQSC run commands like  " set authrec profile('XXXXX')
    objtype(qmgr) principal(qmqm) authadd(all)? to add correct
    records.  Comment out the wrong records in the DMPMQMCFG output
    file.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Customer who use authority record to get QMQM entity type.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    IBM iSeries
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    WMQ code doesn't set QMQM entity type correctly. So it shows
    GROUP but in fact it is PRINCIPAL.
    

Problem conclusion

  • WMQ code is changed to set the entity type of QMQM for authority
    record correctly. The code change will create the authority
    records correctly for newly created Queue Managers. Already
    existing Queue Managers are not effected. The incorrect
    authority records have no other impact especially for QM run
    time authority checks.
