Installation Instructions

The PTFs which provide the fixes for this fix pack should be installed using the standard iSeries PTF process.


Please note:
1. Before applying WMQ v6.0.2.9 PTFs, users MUST quiesce all the Queue Managers and stop the QMQM subsystem.

2. For systems with CCSID 5026, (/QSYS.LIB/JA_JP_5026.LOCALE) the WMQ Java PTFs will fail to apply. This is because, at the time of PTF application, a PTF exit starts up to create a directory in the WMQ IFS path and encounters a path name that has lowercase characters(CCSID 5026 does not support lowercase characters).

CCSID 5026 (/QSYS.LIB/JA_JP_5026.LOCALE) is not a supported environment for WMQ v6. This is documented in WMQ Infocenter under heading "Installing translated versions" as "To run the Japanese language version of WebSphere MQ for iSeries, the CCSID of the job must be 939 (5035) rather than 930 (5026) because WebSphere MQ uses lowercase English alphabets."

Hence please ensure that the job CCSID is CCSID = 5035, QLOCALE = /QSYS.LIB/JA_5035.LOCALE at the time of applying WMQ v6.0.2.1 and subsequent PTFs. If PTFs are made to apply at the IPL time, ensure all necessary settings so that the CCSID is not 5026.

Some of the PTFs exceed the size allowed for downloading immediately from Fix Central. For guidance,
