This techdoc shows all the steps to upgrade WebSphere MQ 7.0.1 with the GSKit, to WebSphere MQ 7.5 with the GSKit in Linux.
This is a straight upgrade and does not exploit the 'multi-version' feature introduced with MQ 7.1, in which several versions of MQ can co-exist ("side-by-side").
You can upgrade from MQ 7.0 to MQ 7.5, without first going through MQ 7.1.
MQ 7.5 includes also Advanced Messaging Security (AMS) and Managed File Transfer. This document does not cover their installation. The scope is only for the MQ Server, MQ Explorer, JMS and Development toolkit.
Even though the platform used in this techdoc is Linux x86 32-bit, the overall instructions apply also to other UNIX distributions: AIX, HP-UX and Solaris.
The chapters are:
Chapter 1: Uninstalling MQ 7.0
Chapter 2: Installing MQ 7.5
Chapter 3: Running setmqinst to designate the Primary installation
Chapter 4: Running setmqenv to use MQ 7.5 commands
Chapter 5: Creating a queue manager under 7.5
Chapter 6: Remote access to the new MQ 7.5 queue manager
Chapter 7: Using MQ Explorer 7.5
Chapter 8: Migrating an MQ 7.0 queue manager to MQ 7.5
