Information on older fix packs has moved. The new home for this information is here: Older Fix Packs: IBM MQ Version


For updates to MQ V9.1, 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 .

Fix Packs are delivered only for Multiplatforms and the IBM MQ Appliance. They are not delivered for the z/OS platform.

You download IBM MQ updates 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 Version adds 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.

Details of the fixes delivered in this fix pack are here: Fix list for IBM MQ Version 9.1.0 LTS

Downloading the release from Passport Advantage

To create a new installation, or add new operating system support, you download the release from Passport Advantage.

Other useful links

A number of MQ components are also made available on IBM Fix Central and elsewhere for ease of download. Note that the IBM MQ Advanced certified container (formerly MQ Cloud Pak) is delivered as a Continuous Delivery image only because of the pace of change in this area, which means that updates are needed at the frequency of the MQ CD releases.
