APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If a user omits a filename or specifies a non-existing filename
    when using the amqicfil program during manual installation, then
    the failure is silent and the customer will not notice that the
    target file has not been patched.
    

Local fix

  • Run the command again, with the correct command line arguments.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Normally a user runs mqfixinst to install an interim fix.  This
    issue would only affect IBM MQ users who install MQ fixes
    manually, without using mqfixinst, and who mistype the command.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    If a user omitted a filename or specified a non-existing
    filename when using the amqicfil program during manual
    installation, then the failure was silent and so the user would
    not be notified that the target file had not been patched.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The problem has been fixed by adding additional validation for
    the user-specified filename. If the file to be modified does not
    exist, the user now receives an appropriate error message.
