Abstract

Download Description

Choose a different release by clicking a tab above.


Overview

For updates to IBM MQ 9.3, you choose between Long Term Support (LTS) and Continuous Delivery (CD) releases. The continuous delivery releases incrementally build on the IBM MQ 9.3 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 .

The IBM MQ 9.3.1 CD release is delivered concurrently on Multiplatforms, z/OS, and the IBM MQ Appliance. For IBM MQ 9.3 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 9.3.1, defect fixes are provided up to 20 October 2023.

From 1Q 2023 Cumulative security updates (CSUs) are issued for the latest CD release. For more information, click the "Latest CD fix" tab above.

Details of the fixes delivered in this release are here: Fix list for IBM MQ 9.3.x Continuous Delivery.

There is no trial version available for CD releases. A trial version of the LTS release, for each of the last two IBM MQ major versions, is available for download 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 from Passport Advantage (subject to entitlement) is the IBM Aspera fasp.io Gateway (G05Q7ML).

  • Note: Prior to 1Q 2023, non-install images for building your own IBM MQ queue manager container images were available from Passport Advantage. These images are now available on Fix Central. See Other useful links > Containers near the end of this document.

  • 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 is a bundle of IBM MQ Advanced for z/OS and IBM MQ for z/OS Value Unit Edition. The bundle 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. This provides the IBM MQ Advanced Message Security and IBM MQ Managed File Transfer features.
    To upgrade from a previous IBM MQ 9.3.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 PH49563 (for IBM MQ for z/OS. Includes IBM MQ Managed File Transfer)
    • APAR PH49564 (for IBM MQ Advanced for z/OS Value Unit Edition)
  • For the IBM MQ Appliance 9.3.1 firmware image, go to Fix Central . This firmware image can be applied to the M2003 and M2002 hardware models.


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

Downloadable .zip and .tar.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 signatures and the public keys to verify them. IBM MQ public certificates, checksums, and .sig files are available from https://ibm.biz/mq93signatures. For information on how to validate the signatures, see IBM MQ code signatures.
