Download Description

Choose a different release by clicking a tab above.


Overview

For updates to IBM MQ 9.2, you choose between Long Term Support (LTS) and Continuous Delivery (CD) releases. The continuous delivery releases incrementally build on the IBM MQ 9.2 features, providing early, supported, access to the latest IBM MQ capabilities. For more information, see the IBM MQ FAQ for Long Term Support and Continuous Delivery Releases .

A trial version of the LTS release is available for download. See the latest LTS Fix Pack by clicking a tab above.

The IBM MQ 9.2.5 CD release is delivered concurrently on Multiplatforms, z/OS, and the IBM MQ Appliance. For CD releases, Multiplatforms refers to AIX, Linux, and Windows. Defect fixes are provided for a CD release for 12 months from general availability (GA) or while it remains one of the two most recent CD releases, whichever is longer. For IBM MQ 9.2.5, defect fixes are provided up to 24 February 2023.

Details of the fixes delivered in this release are here:


Downloading the release

You can download the release from the following locations:

  • For Multiplatforms, provided your IBM ID is entitled, click a part number in the following table to download either the full release eAssembly, or any of the eImages that make up the full release. Alternatively, sign in to Passport Advantage then search for the part number you need.

    Also available (subject to entitlement) are additional components for building your own IBM MQ queue manager container images (CJ8QUML), and for the IBM Aspera fasp.io Gateway (CJ77KML). Note that these two eAssemblies are delivered as Continuous Delivery images because of the pace of change in these areas, and because any version of the certified container is supported for one year only (when used as part of an IBM MQ CD release) or 18 months only (when used as part of an IBM Cloud Pak for Integration 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.

  • For z/OS, sign in to Shopz . After you sign in, you have two options:
    • Option 1: Order the features as a new product installation.
    • Option 2: Apply PTFs to a previously installed release.
    Each of the PIDs in the following list has a Long Term Support and Continuous Delivery orderable feature. Use these PIDs to order the features as a new product installation:
    • 5655-MQ9 - IBM MQ for z/OS
    • 5655-VU9 - IBM MQ for z/OS Value Unit Edition
    • 5655-AV1 - IBM MQ Advanced for z/OS Value Unit Edition. This edition is a bundle of IBM MQ Advanced for z/OS and IBM MQ for z/OS Value Unit Edition. Includes the IBM MQ Advanced Message Security and IBM MQ Managed File Transfer features plus the IBM MQ Connector Pack.
    • 5655-AV9 - IBM MQ Advanced for z/OS. Provides the IBM MQ Advanced Message Security and IBM MQ Managed File Transfer features.
    To upgrade from a previous IBM MQ 9.2.x Continuous Delivery release level, download and install the PTFs for one or both of the following APARs. In Shopz, leave as the default option ‘Include requisite service from past 90 days’ to ensure all required PTFs are ordered for associated APARs.
    • APAR PH42801 (for IBM MQ for z/OS. Includes IBM MQ Managed File Transfer)
    • APAR PH42802 (for IBM MQ Advanced for z/OS Value Unit Edition)
  • For the IBM MQ Appliance 9.2.5 firmware image, go to Fix Central . This firmware image can be applied to the M2000, M2001, and M2002 hardware models.


Most IBM MQ downloadable files are now signed and have a published SHA256 checksum

From IBM MQ 9.2.4 onwards, downloadable .zip, .tar, and .gz files are signed. Installable .rpm and .deb files are also signed. Where possible the signature is embedded in the file. For file formats that do not allow this, a separate .sig file is made available containing the signature that can be validated. IBM MQ public certificates, checksums, and .sig files are initially available for the Continuous Delivery stream and can be obtained from here. For information on how to validate the signatures, see IBM MQ code signatures.
