Error description

  • MQRC 2110 (MQRC_FORMAT_ERROR) occurs when converting messages
    due to unconverted format name in RFH2 header
    
    EBCDIC RFH2 header contains UTF8/ASCII
    value in 'Format' field after applying
    the PTF for PM77599.

    MQGMO_CONVERT option, the get returns
    MQRC_FORMAT_ERROR (MQRC 2110).

    ****************************************************************
    During the get of a message, an RFH2 header is created to
    contain any message properties, and is inserted into the chain
    of headers at the start of the message. If the RFH2 is inserted
    after an RFH1 or RFH2 header, the Format field from that header
    is converted to the CodedCharSetId of the new RFH2 header
    (normally the CodedCharSetId of the Queue Manager) and stored in
    the new RFH2. However, if the Format field is in CodedCharSetId
    1208 (UTF8), an error in the code added by PM77599 causes the
    conversion to fail, and the unconverted value (in UTF8) is
    stored in the new RFH2 instead.
    

Problem conclusion

  • CSQMHDRS is updated to prevent the conversion error when
    inserting the properties RFH2 after an RFH1 or RFH2 header in
    UTF8.
