This document describes how to download IBM MQ 9.1.0, Fix Pack 7.
Choose a different release by clicking a tab above.
For updates to MQ 9.1, you choose between Long Term Support (LTS) and Continuous Delivery (CD) releases. Long Term Support corresponds with the way we have traditionally supported and maintained MQ, through delivery of Fix Packs. Long Term Support is for systems that demand the highest levels of stability. Updates during the support period contain fixes to identified problems and vulnerabilities, and do not add new function. For more information, see the IBM MQ FAQ for Long Term Support and Continuous Delivery Releases.
The IBM MQ 9.1 LTS releases are delivered concurrently on Multiplatforms, z/OS and the MQ Appliance. For MQ 9.1 LTS releases, Multiplatforms refers to AIX, IBM i, Linux, Solaris, and Windows. Note that, from IBM MQ 9.2.0, Solaris is no longer a supported platform.
Long Term Support is rolled up into fix packs for Multiplatforms and IBM MQ Appliance, and provided as PTFs for z/OS. For Unix System Services features (that is, JMS and WEB UI, Connector Pack, and Managed File Transfer) the z/OS PTFs are aligned directly with the Multiplatforms fix packs. Other PTFs are made available as and when they are produced.
For z/OS, you download the PTFs from Shopz. For Multiplatforms, you get the download from Fix Central or Passport Advantage. You typically use the Fix Central download to update an existing installation, and the Passport Advantage download to create a new installation. If new operating system support is added to IBM MQ ensure you install from the latest available Passport Advantage download. MQ 126.96.36.199 updates the Linux and Windows x86 64-bit platforms. When you download from Passport Advantage, check that the eImage is at the latest fix pack level for your platform. If not, install the eImage then apply the latest fix pack from Fix Central.
Details of the fixes delivered in this fix pack are here: Fix list for IBM MQ Version 9.1 LTS.

Downloading the release from Passport Advantage
To create a new installation, or add new operating system support, you download the release from Passport Advantage. For this fix pack, the copy of the release on Passport Advantage was updated for the Linux and Windows x86 64-bit platforms. For all other platforms, after you download and install the release, you need to get the fix pack from Fix Central and apply it to the installation.
Provided your IBM ID is entitled, click a part number in the following table to download either the full production release eAssembly, or any of the eImages that make up the production release. Alternatively, sign in to Passport Advantage . For the full release, search for part number CJ3DZML for production use and CJ3E0ML for trial use. If you don't need the full release, you can instead search for any of the eImages that make up the full release.
If you install IBM MQ eAssembly images on a UNIX or Linux-based platform, you must use GNU tar (also known as gtar) to unpack any tar images.

A number of MQ components are also made available on IBM Fix Central and elsewhere for ease of download. Note that the IBM MQ Advanced certified container (formerly IBM MQ Cloud Pak) is delivered as a Continuous Delivery image because of the pace of change in this area, and because any given version of the container is supported for one year only.
