This document describes how to download IBM MQ 9.2.0, Fix Pack 2.
Choose a different release by clicking a tab above.
For updates to MQ 9.2, 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 9.2 LTS releases are delivered concurrently on Multiplatforms, z/OS and the MQ Appliance. For MQ 9.2 LTS releases, Multiplatforms refers to AIX, IBM i, Linux, 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. For example, MQ 184.108.40.206 added RHEL 8 support to the Linux on x86 64-bit platform. 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.

A number of IBM MQ resources are also made available on Fix Central and elsewhere. Note that the IBM MQ Advanced certified container is subject to entitlement, and is delivered as a Continuous Delivery image because of the pace of change in this area, and because any given version of the certified container is supported for one year only (when used as part of IBM MQ Continuous Delivery) or 18 months only (when used as part of the IBM Cloud Pak for Integration).
