Abstract

This document contains system requirements for WebSphere MQ V6.0 on HP-UX PA-RISC platform.

Content

The System Requirements documented on this page are for the HP-UX PA-RISC platform. If you require support information about HP-UX on the Itanium platform please refer to the HP-UX Itanium platform System Requirements.

  • TCP/IP (provided by the operation system); IPv6 feature support is available with HP's Transport Optional Upgrade Release (TOUR)
Transaction Manager Where one of these products is acting as the transaction manager and IBM WebSphere MQ is acting as a resource manager, it's recommended that you contact the transaction manager vendor in the first instance for support.
  • IBM TXSeries V5.1

Cryptography Cards Refer to the Cryptography Card List for WebSphere MQ v6 and v7 document for further information.

Notes:

  1. For HP-UX 11i V1 (B11.11), only the PA-RISC 2.0 chipset systems will be supported.
  2. For Oracle 9i, Release 2 with Patch Set 4 (V9.2.0.5) patch 3501955 is required.
  3. Where higher levels of WebSphere Application Server V6 are suggested, this only includes V6.x levels and does not include other product versions.
  4. HP-UX (PA-RISC) with 64-bit hardware, 32-bit and 64-bit WebSphere MQ APIs are supported and the operating system must have a 64-bit kernel.
  5. On 64-bit platforms where WebSphere MQ provides both a 32-bit and a 64-bit product, there is NO migration path from V6 32-bit Queue Managers to V6 64-bit Queue Managers. Customers are strongly advised to install WebSphere MQ 64-bit products on 64-bit platforms as there is a migration path from V5 32-bit products to V6 64-bit products.
  6. The 'MQ Explorer' is not supported on this platform.
  7. Only DB2 and Oracle are supported for JDBC and XA usage.
  8. For details of the Support Statement for JCA (on WebSphere MQ V6.0.2.1 or later only) please see here.
  9. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.2 or later is required; also refer to Technote 1270591.
  10. Defect support is available for virtualization environments where they relate to releases of this platform already supported by WebSphere MQ. Unless stated elsewhere in the system requirements, WebSphere MQ has not been specifically tested in virtualization environments. WebSphere MQ Support is therefore unable to assist in issues related to configuration and setup, or issues that are directly related to the virtualization environment itself.
  11. WebSphere MQ V6.0.2.1 or later is required.
  12. The resiliency feature of TXSeries V6.1/V6.2 is not supported with WMQ v6. For more details, please refer to
    XA Resiliency feature of TXSeries V6.1/V6.2 doesn't work with WMQ as RM.
  13. The use of the WebSphere MQ classes for JMS in EJBs and MDBs is fully supported. The WebSphere MQ base classes for Java are supported with restrictions - for more details see Using WebSphere MQ Java Interfaces in J2EE/JEE Environments.
  14. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.4 or later is required.
  15. The Java Runtime Environment must be run with the following parameter set: -XX:+UseGetTimeOfDay
  16. Patches from HP must be applied depending on the operating system version being used:
  • HP-UX 11i V3 - patch is PHSS-37202 (see here)
  • HP-UX 11i V2 - patch is PHSS-37201 (see here)
  • HP-UX 11i V1 - patch is PHSS-35385 (see here)
1. WebSphere MQ 6.0.2.8 or later is required.
