MO71 Version 8.0.1 available

Oh dear....for all of you who downloaded this version please accept my apologies. It seems a little bug has crept in which prevents it showing the horizontal scrollbar in dialogs. This was caused by a small change to fix a scrollbar clash. Anyway, if you download a fresh version from here http://www.mqgem.com/mo71_download.html you should find it fixed.

This will serve me right for making the version available immediately rather than having a Beta,

My thanks to those of you who pointed out the problem to me,

Cheers,
Paul.

MO71 Version 8.0.1 available

Hi,

 

I am pleased to announce that Version 8.0.1 of MO71 is now available at http://www.mqgem.com/mo71_download.html

 

This is a minor release which was only intended to contain one feature which has been requested by a number of customers and that is a password cache file. This allows the user to store their Queue Manager passwords in a cache file making accessing their Queue Managers much easier.

 

However, another of my customers, Peter Potkay, asked so nicely for the ability to view the attributes of multiple Queue Managers in a single window that that has also been added. This means that it is now easy to make queries such as ‘show me any Queue Managers which are MQ 7.1 or earlier’.

 

Anyone with a licence for a previous version of MO71 can download and start using the new version immediately at no additional cost.

 

If anyone would like to try out this version then please send a request to support-PvZknbXPofMAvxtiuMwx3w@public.gmane.org for a one month trial licence provided free with no obligation to buy.

 

Cheers,

Paul.

IBM MQ, SSL and the PODLE Attack

This just came out from IBM on how MQ is impacted by POODLE:

Still waiting for the WMB TechNote on POODLE.

Why do Full Repositories accept a second QM by the same name

So we all know your cluster’s going to be less than perfect if you add a second QM by the same name into the cluster. Or if you delete and recreate a Partial Repository and then add the new one into the cluster, again things are going to be messy.

 

Clearly the FRs know this is a duplicate because they will show you both by QMID when you do a display cluster queue manager list. And they let you selectively eject one of the duplicates.

 

So if the FRs can identify duplicates, why do they even accept the second one? I have never seen anything in MQ Clustering where having 2 QMs by the same name would be anything less than problematic , so why don’t the FRs just reject the attempt by the second QM automatically, sending back some sort of message to the new PR attempting to join that would cause the new PR to log a rather explicit message along the lines of “Hey, you are about to make a mess of things here. If you really want to add THIS queue manager to the cluster, first remove the old one by the same name.”

 

Is there any legitimate reason for a FR to accept a duplicate PR?

Page Set Dynamic Extension Question

Hi MQListers,

MQV 7.1 info states that a pageset can be extended up to a maximum of 119 times.

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/?lang=en#!/SSFKSJ_7.1.0/com.ibm.mq.doc/zc12670_.htm

 

However, today I found a pageset that had been extended 124 times. Is this an error in the doc, or is my MQ monitoring software (MainView) reporting this incorrectly?

 

 

 

Regards – Grant.

MQLight: Any opinions

Greetings –

 

My developers saw an ad for MQ Light (https://developer.ibm.com/messaging/mq-light/how-can-mq-light-help-my-applications/).  Anyone tried the beta yet?  It isn’t clear to me what the type of situation you would use it for versus the regular MQ. Thanks for any information.

 

Regards,

Barbara

New release of MH06 supportpac (v8 support)

Hello,

 

There is a new release of the MH06 supportpac -> http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24036430

 

This release includes the following enhancements:

- v8 support

- Windows 64 bit trace formatting support

- Application Activity Trace formatting support

 

The Activity Trace formatting support is for when you run with TraceLevel=HIGH and get hex dumps of some of the API data structures.  The mqtrcfrmt tool will format those out into human readable text with MQ constant expansion included.

 

Thanks,

Tim

SET AUTHREC - using AUTHRMV(ALL) then AUTHADD

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/#!/SSFKSJ_7.5.0/com.ibm.mq.ref.adm.doc/q086620_.htm

 

[quote]

Usage notes

The list of authorizations to add and the list of authorizations to remove must not overlap. For example, you cannot add display authority and remove display authority with the same command. This rule applies even if the authorities are expressed using different options. For example, the following command fails because DSP authority overlaps with ALLADM authority:

SET AUTHREC PROFILE(*) OBJTYPE(QUEUE) PRINCIPAL(PRINC01) AUTHADD(DSP) AUTHRMV(ALLADM)

[/quote]

 

OK, that's straightforward.

 

But I intended to replicate what I did in my setmqaut scripts where, being a T.Rob disciple, I clearly remove any and all authorities before applying what I intend, knowing that I end up with only exactly what this command says and no other leftover junk.

 

So I try the following command, and it works:

SET AUTHREC GROUP('mygroup') OBJTYPE(QMGR) AUTHRMV(ALL) AUTHADD(CONNECT)

And that conflicts with the Knowledge Center article, since ALL clearly overlaps CONNECT.

 

So is the Knowledge Center Article wrong? Or am I taking advantage of a loophole that might get “fixed” who knows when?

Name change: Capitalware's MQ Technical Conference???

All,

At MQTC v2.0.1.4, several people mentioned that initially, they 
thought "Capitalware's MQ Technical Conference" was ONLY a conference 
on Capitalware's products.  I was surprised by these comments and 
made me wonder how many people 'out there' also think MQTC is only on 
Capitalware's products.

So, I'm thinking of changing the conference name to:

-  MQ Technical Conference presented by Capitalware
-  MQ Technical Conference hosted by Capitalware
-  MQ Technical Conference managed by Capitalware
-  MQ Technical Conference brought to you by Capitalware

If the name "Capitalware's MQ Technical Conference" might cause 
confusion then I'm open to suggestions.  What do people think?

Regards,
Roger Lacroix
