Problem summary

  •  The 'empty' CipherSpec used for clearing
    this attribute was missing in MQ's internal CipherSpec
    list.
    

Problem conclusion

  •  The missing CipherSpecused
    for clearing this attribute has been added to the
    internal CipherSpec list.
    

Temporary fix

  •  Redefine the channel usingthe
    'DEFINE CHANNEL ... REPLACE' command in runmqsc instead
    of 'ALTER CHANNEL' will circumvent this problem.
