Overview

For updates to IBM MQ 9.3, you choose between Long Term Support (LTS) and Continuous Delivery (CD) releases. Long Term Support corresponds with the way we traditionally support and maintain IBM 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 9.3 LTS releases are delivered concurrently on Multiplatforms, z/OS, and the IBM MQ Appliance. For IBM MQ 9.3 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 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 (for example IBM MQ 9.1.0.5 added RHEL 8 support to the Linux on x86 64-bit platform), ensure you install from the latest available Passport Advantage download. 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 9.3 LTS

A trial version of the LTS release is available for download here.


Downloading the fix pack from Fix Central (IBM MQ Appliance and IBM MQ for Multiplatforms)

To update an existing installation, you apply the fix pack to the installation. You are asked to register before you are presented with a set of downloadable files.


For checksum information to validate fix pack downloads, see Checksum values for IBM MQ downloads from Fix Central.


Downloading the release from Passport Advantage (IBM MQ for Multiplatforms)

For Multiplatforms, 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 only for the three components for containers. The release was not updated for any of the IBM MQ platforms. So 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 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 (G05JWML), and for the IBM Aspera fasp.io Gateway (G05Q7ML). 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 2 years, with an optional extension for another year (when used as part of an IBM Cloud Pak for Integration LTS 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.

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.
