Error description

  • After upgrading WebSphere MQ to version 7.1.0.0 the libmqm.a
    and libmqm_r.a libraries are missing. Applications fail like
    the following:
    
    $ /usr/mqm/samp/bin/amqsput QUEUE QUEUE_MANAGER
    exec(): 0509-036 Cannot load program
    /usr/mqm/samp/bin/amqsput because of the following errors:
    0509-150   Dependent module libmqm_r.a(libmqm_r.o)
    could not be loaded.
    0509-022 Cannot load module libmqm_r.a(libmqm_r.o).
    0509-026 System error: A file or directory in the
    path name does not exist.
    

Local fix

  • There are two ways around this:
    
    1. Rather than upgrading MQ in-place, instead uninstall 7.0.1
    and then install 7.1 from scratch.
    2. Perform a forced reinstall of the runtime component which
    would repopulate the missing files.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users upgrading WebSphere MQ to version 7.1.0.0
    
    Platforms affected:
    AIX
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    In WebSphere MQ version 7.1 libmqm.a and libmqm_r.a were moved
    from the mqm.server.rte fileset to the mqm.runtime.rte fileset.
    The MQ upgrade process on AIX should have moved the libraries
    from the server component to the runtime component. Instead the
    libraries are removed from the system and are not available
    after the upgrade.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Because this problem can only be fixed with a new installation
    image, this APAR is being closed as FIN (Fixed if there is
    another release) and in the meantime the AIX installation
    instructions will be changed to indicate that previous versions
    of WebSphere MQ should be uninstalled before installing
    V7.1.0.0.
