Installing

If you are applying V7.0.0.5 (Fix Pack 5) service to the Message Broker Toolkit, refer to the installation information available in the WebSphere Message Broker information center to ensure that you complete the process correctly. Installation information is available in the WebSphere Message Broker information center at:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wmbhelp/v7r0m0/topic/com.ibm.etools.mft.doc/bh45500_.htm

A WebSphere Message Broker fix pack can be installed on a UNIX, Linux, or Windows system only after a full version of WebSphere Message Broker has been installed. You must install the GA (General Availability) code to ensure that you comply with your license agreement. The full version of WebSphere Message Broker can be installed to any location on your system, and you are not required to install the fix pack to the same location. If you attempt to install the fix pack on a system that does not have a full version of WebSphere Message Broker installed, your installation fails with the following message:


    The License Agreement could not be properly loaded.

Applying service to z/OS

If you are applying service to z/OS, the Program Temporary Fix (PTF) packages must be downloaded as binary files, and then transferred to z/OS:
1. Download the PTF packages as binary files from the WebSphere Message Broker support website at http://www.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/Software/WebSphere/WebSphere_Message_Broker and save the files to your workstation.
2. Allocate sequential data sets with the following attributes:

Organization . . . : PS

Record format . . . : FB

Record length . . . : 1024

Block size . . . . : 6144

1st extent tracks . : 500

Secondary tracks . : 50

You can use the following sample Job Control Language (JCL) to allocate these data sets:

/* INSERT A VALID JOBCARD HERE

//*

//ALLOCATE EXEC PGM=IEFBR14

//SYSMOD1 DD DSN=YOUR HIGH LEVEL QUALIFIER (HLQ).PTF NUMBER.TRS,

// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),

// UNIT=SYSDA,

// SPACE=(TRK,(500,50),RLSE),

// DSORG=PS,

// DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=1024,BLKSIZE=6144)

//*
3. Transfer the binary files from your local workstation to z/OS. File Transfer Protocol (FTP) can be used to transfer the files to the target z/OS as binary files by using the replace option, for example:

put PTF NUMBER.TRS 'YOUR HLQ.PTF NUMBER.TRS' (replace
4. Unpack the data sets using the TRSMAIN utility program. This utility is freely available at http://techsupport.services.ibm.com/390/trsmain.html.

You can use the following sample JCL to unpack the data sets after the changes have been made, and a suitable job card added:

//*****************************************************

//* UNTERSE APAR

//*****************************************************

/UNPACK EXEC PGM=TRSMAIN,PARM='UNPACK'

//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TERSE.LOADLIB

//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*

//INFILE DD DSN=YOUR HLQ.PTF NUMBER.TRS,

// DISP=SHR

//OUTFILE DD DSN=YOUR HLQ.PTF NUMBER,

// DISP=(NEW,CATLG),

// SPACE=(TRK,(1000,100,))

/*
5. Apply the resulting files using System Modification Program/Extended (SMP/E) for z/OS RECEIVE and APPLY.

    Installation data has incompatible version 0.0.4; expected [0.0.2,0.0.3].
    Newer version of the Installation Manager was used on the system.

    Solution:

    To workaround this issue, you must update Installation Manager to version 1.3.4.1 or later using a platform specific installer package. The name of a platform specific installer package for Installation Manager is agent.installer.platform.zip where platform indicates the operating system.

    Download the latest installer package from IBM Support Portal. Select the Installation Manager links from http://www.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/Recommended_fix/Software/Rational/IBM_Installation_Manager. Look for entries with the title 'IBM Installation Manager, version" where version is the version number.

    After you download the platform specific installer package, take the following steps:
    1. Extract the compressed file to a directory.
    2. Complete one of these steps:

    • For a GUI based installation, run install.exe on Windows or install on Linux and UNIX systems.
    • For a silent installation, open a command prompt to the directory where you extracted the installer package. Run the command:
      Windows: installc --launcher.ini silent-install.ini Linux and UNIX systems: ./install --launcher.ini silent-install.ini

    The error does not occur after updating Installation Manager to version 1.3.4.1 or later. For more information about this error, refer to the Technote available at: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21439108.
  • Windows: Attachment Manager

    Symptoms:

    If you are installing an IBM product by using an electronic image from IBM Passport Advantage, and you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, your Windows Security settings might cause Attachment Manager to block the content of the installer .zip file, causing your installation to fail.

    Solution:

    To work around this problem, complete the following steps:
    1. Download the electronic image from IBM Passport Advantage.
    2. Right-click the blocked .zip file, then click Properties.
    3. On the General tab, click Unblock.

    For more information about Windows Attachment Manager, refer to the Microsoft Help and Support website at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883260

  • Uninstalling WebSphere Message Broker from a shell-share environment

    You have installed WebSphere Message Broker Version 7.0.0.1 in a shell-share environment that contains another product. You decided to uninstall WebSphere Message Broker 7.0.0.1 from the shell-share environment. At the end of the uninstallation process, IBM Installation Manager reports the following problem:

    Problem during session finalization
    Validation of Eclipse installation configuration failed because it references feature or bundles in its "platform.xml" file that do not exist.
    Feature not found: "C:\Program Files\IBM\WMBT700\features\com.ibm.etools.webservice.discovery.core.patch_7.0.204.v200906231258-78-8b8s733K3A6659_A"

    Solution:

    You can safely ignore this message because the file being referenced is removed as part of the WebSphere Message Broker uninstallation process. The platform.xml file does not reference the deleted file after the uninstallation process is completed.

  • Windows: Default Configuration Wizard fails to run after installing from DVD

    Symptoms:

    You have installed the complete WebSphere Message Broker Version 7.0.0.1 software package from DVD (that is, WebSphere MQ, WebSphere Message Broker and the WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit). You have attempted to run the Default Configuration Wizard in the WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit, and the following error is displayed:

    mqsicvp.exe Unable to locate component
    This application has failed to start because MQM.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem.

    Solution:

    There is no need to reinstall the product. Shutdown and restart your system, and then run the Default Configuration Wizard in the WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit again. The wizard should now complete normally.

  • Solaris: Uninstalling a fix pack causes subsequent fix pack installations to fail

    Symptoms:

    On Solaris SPARC and Solaris AMD64 platforms where WebSphere Message Broker V7 has been installed to more than one location, uninstalling fix packs causes the resinstallation of a fix pack to fail.

    Solution:

    Do not uninstall the fix pack, but continue to install to a new location. Installing a full version of WebSphere Message Broker restores the ability to install a fix pack.

  • Solaris: The SupportPac IE02 installation process displays a "not found" message

    Symptoms:

    When installing the optional WebSphere Message Broker ODBC Database Extender (SupportPac IE02) on a Solaris SPARC or Solaris AMD64 platform, the installation process might display the following message:
    Preparing to install...
    ./IE02/install-ie02.bin: !: not found

    Solution:

    You can safely ignore this message. The installation of SupportPac IE02 continues and completes as normal.



TOP

WebSphere Message Broker Explorer
  • No known issues.

TOP
WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit
  • Reset the WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit perspective after migrating

    Symptoms:

    When migrating the WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit and its resources, you might see items such as the previous toolkits options in menus, which have been removed since the last delivery.

    Solution:

    When opening the WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit and the Broker Application Development perspective, click Window > Reset Perspective to ensure that all views and menus are updated for Version 7.0.

  • Coexistence of a Version 6.1 WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit with a Version 7.0 toolkit

    Symptoms:

    Coexistence of a Version 6.1 WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit with a Version 7.0 toolkit might display a Version 7.0 splash screen when starting the Version 6.1 toolkit. This problem applies to Version 6.1 toolkit versions up to and including V6.1.0.3.

    Solution:

    This issue is resolved in Version 6.1.0.4 (Fix Pack 4). Upgrade your Toolkit to V6.1.0.4 or later.

  • Step 1 in information center topic bh26001_ Verifying your installation using the WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit is incorrect in Version 7.0.0.0 GA

    This issue is resolved in Version 7.0.0.1 (Fix Pack 1). Customers using Version 7.0.0.1 (Fix Pack 1) or later should refer to the online information center for an updated version of this topic.

    The following text shows the correct text for this step:

    • On Linux:

      On Linux on x86, you do not need root authority to complete verification. You cannot launch the WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit from the installation wizard because if you were to create resources such as brokers when you are logged in as root, you might experience problems during operation and this option is therefore unavailable.

      Log off from the user ID with which you have installed the product. Log in as the same ID (if this is not root), or log in as another ID, but do not become root.

      Launch the WebSphere Message Broker Toolkit from the main menu or run the script file provided. On a command line, navigate to the root directory of the package group and enter the following command:

      >>./launcher

      You can also run the application directly if you prefer:

      ./eclipse -product

      com.ibm.etools.msgbroker.tooling.ide

      However, you must set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH before running the application. For details of how to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH, see the launcher script.<<


  • Importing resources into a new workspace and mqsicreatebar might require project clean

    Symptoms:

    When you import resources into a new workspace, error messages might display after autobuild is complete.

    Solution:

    In the Broker Development view, select your projects and right-click Project > Clean to rebuild the projects. After the projects are cleaned, the error messages relating to the import are removed.

    Symptoms:

    When you run the mqsicreatebar command and specify a new workspace, error messages might display.

    Solution:

    Use the -cleanBuild option when running the mqsicreatebar command to clean the projects.

  • Drag-and-drop in the Mapping Editor

    The following topics in the information center describe the ability to drag-and-drop elements in the Mapping Editor:

    • Topic ar25290_ Mapping from source: by selection
    • Topic ar25267_ Mapping a target element from database tables

    However, on Linux, the drag-and-drop function does not work correctly in the Mapping Editor. Therefore you cannot drag a source element from the Source pane to a target element in the Target pane, or drag a source element from the Source pane to the Edit pane. In addition, you cannot move elements up or down by using drag-and-drop on an element in the MapScript pane.

    Alternative methods of performing these actions are documented in the information center. To move elements in the MapScript pane, you can use either Copy and Paste, or the Delete and Recreate/Populate actions.

    Solution:

    This issue has been resolved in Fix Pack 1.
