WMQ AMQ9413: Repository command format error

Technote (troubleshooting)


When you issue any WebSphere MQ cluster commands, such as refresh cluster, you are getting FDCs generated with Probe Id RM322000 and Major Errorcode rrcE_CLUS_COMMAND_ERROR. You also get error messages in the queue manager error log reporting AMQ9413.


In the queue manager error log:

When copying the saveqmgr output from the previous queue managers which were on Windows systems, you forgot to change the CCSID from 437 to 1208 before creating your queue manager on AIX.

Resolving the problem

Alter the queue manager to use a CCSID of UTF-8 (1208) instead of 437 and restart the queue manager.
