APAR Description
IT08589 to MQOPEN (sometimes MQPUT1, MQPUT) suffer queue name lookup errors WebSphere MQ V6 or V7 queues become "missing" from clusters. Application calls (Examples: 2085, 2082) when they try to access the affected cluster queues
IT10388 When the receiving QMgr has its channel set with SSLCAUTH(OPTIONAL), the Nonstop Queue Manager insists on sending a certificate to identify itself. The remote side, however, does not require one
IT11557 Updated OpenSSL library to version 1.0.2h. This update deprecates sslchiph cipherspec TLS_RSA_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA and fixes various security vulnerabilities
IT12856 When a node is removed from an MQ cluster and there is an automatically defined cluster sender channel from a MQ node on NonStop to the removed node, the sender channel on NonStop can go into state INITIALIZING and stay there for up to 60 minutes instead of being deleted after the first retry interval has expired.
IT12875 When a message is put into a remote/cluster queue within a TMF user transaction and while the corresponding transmit queue is empty or almost empty, it can take up to 60 seconds after the end of the transaction until the message is transmitted. As a side effect automatic channel starts can also be delayed.
IT12894 Java 7 SSL clients behave differently than previous versions which resulted in an RC 2009 error on its connection attempt. This is fixed with V.5.3.1.12.
IT14169 When a CPU is stopped, some sender channels were not recovered and stayed in inactive state.
IT15316 Memory allocation during MCA and LQMA creation and initialization was not handled properly and may result in an unresponsive system.
IT15317 Under some conditions agents stay alive but don't accept new connections. That is the case if an agent has reached the maximum number of connections it is allowed to handle during its lifetime but the agent can't terminate before the last connection has been closed.
IT15490 A configured process name rule has not been applied because it was defined with lower case characters, while the operating system interface delivered upper case process names. Since the name comparison then fails the configuration is not applied.
IN000100 The CRTMQM command may fail with error 1017 if queue managers are created in parallel.
IN000101 The installer has been enhanced to properly support SMF virtual disks if the system revision is on H06.26 and newer or J06.15 and newer.
IN000102 Removed access to uninitialized memory within mqconn which may result in RC 2059 MQRC_Q_MGR_NOT_AVAILABLE

APAR Description
IT03572 In V5.3.1.10, the dspmqver -V command displays the string "VPROC" rather than the VPROC string encoded in the product. V5.3.1.11 corrects this problem.
IT04083 Error 30 received by Queue Server in a complex Queue Manager configuration using MQGMO_SET_SIGNAL. This is a result of the limit on the number of outstanding messages sent by the process not being set to the same value as the internal counter. This results in the Queue Server reporting "Guardian error 30 attempting to send signal notification" in the queue manager error log.
IT04533 Cluster sender channels fail to start following a CPU failure on a 2 CPU system when the Repository Manager and Channel Server are both in the same CPU. Following the CPU failure, the Queue Manager error log repeatedly reports message AMQ9422 "Repository manager error, RC=545284114"
IT04876 WebSphere MQ on hp nss listener fails to start following upgrade to hp J06.14/H06.25 or T9050J01-AWT/T9050H02-AWS
IT05353 CVE-2104-3566
IT07330 WebSphere MQ V5.3.X Process does not write FDC (First Failure Symptom Report) records when the current FDC file is physically full. This can result in processes experiencing error conditions, but the error condition not being reported in the FDC file. This fix changes the error handling to identify this scenario and switch to a new FDC file with an incremented sequence number
IV19854 The master repository manager in a partial repository unnecessarily subscribes to each cluster queue manager that it is aware of. This causes a significant increase in the number of subscriptions that are made, and in large clusters this can cause performance problems.
IY87702 SIGSEGV resulting from failed getpwnam. In some circumstances getpwnam can return a success value in errno, but a null pointer as the user record. This results in a SIGSEGV from amqoamd. This change adds a check for this condition and handles it correctly.
IY91357 Altering a channel definition unintentionally resets the SSLPEER() attribute for the channel. When a channel with SSLPEER information is modified to include either MSGEXIT or MSGDATA attributes, the SSLPEER attribute becomes blank. V5.3.1.11 resolves this problem.

IC56493 Cannot use "qualified" hometerm device names with V5.3.1.2.
IC56503 Channel Server and MCA can deadlock after repeated STOP CHANNEL MODE(FORCE) or MODE(TERMINATE) commands.
IC56536 Unthreaded responder channels don't de-register from the EC when an error occurs during or before channel negotiation. For example, bad initial data will cause this. Unthreaded MCAs build up and eventually reach the maximum which prevents further channel starts.
IC56681 C++ unthreaded Tandem-Float SRLs have undefined references.
IC56834 endmqm -p can sometimes leave MCA processes running.
