WITHDRAWN: MS6A: WebSphere MQ V6.0 for UNIX Automatic Migration & Maintenance Installation

Downloadable files


Provides a mechanism to simplify installation of, or migration to, WMQ V6.0 on UNIX platforms and automatically roll out WMQ maintenance to an infrastructure of WMQ installations.

Download Description

This SupportPac allows a repository of WMQ installation media to be created in a central location within your infrastructure. This can include the base GA installation media for multiple UNIX platforms, as well as fix packs and refresh packs.

The SupportPac allows machines to download these packages through the WMQ infrastructure. The amount of disk space required on the machine is minimised by only downloading the packages that are chosen. It performs an automated installation of WMQ, using the same installation process that would be performed manually. Machines can be scheduled to regularly check for and apply new WMQ maintenance when it has been deployed on the repository and tested. When the installation detects migration to WMQ V6.0 from a previous version, a full backup of all queue managers, along with a trace of the restart at WMQ V6.0 where migration takes place, is uploaded back to the central repository through WMQ.

• Simplification of migration to WMQ V6.0.
• Minimising disk space required for WMQ V6.0 install.
• Automatic update of WMQ V6.0 to latest maintenance.

• Added Solaris SPARC, Solaris x86-64, Linux s390 and Linux s390x
• Bug fixes (use of mailx and WMQ process termination)

A knowledge of PERL scripting is useful for customisation to an individual environment, but not required to use the SupportPac.
