WITHDRAWN: MS03: WebSphere MQ - Save Queue Manager object definitions using PCFs (saveqmgr)



This SupportPac (saveqmgr) saves all the objects, such as queues, channels, etc, defined in either a local or remote queue manager, to a file.

Download Description

This SupportPac interrogates the attributes of all the objects defined to a queue manager (either local or remote) and saves them to a file.

Note: From MQ V7.1 onwards, the command dmpmqcfg is available in the product. This is recommended instead of the use of MS03.

This SupportPac is now withdrawn and should only to be used for backup purposes during migration.

Possible Uses
The format of this file is suitable for use with runmqsc. It is therefore possible to use this SupportPac to save the definitions of objects known to a queue manager and subsequently recreate that queue manager.

New in this Release
The following changes have been made to this release:

  • On iSeries *SYSTEM generated rather than +system.
  • Add switch to require NOSYNC for all MQGETs.
  • Add switch to disable save of subscriptions.
