Error description

    But the command makes no change to the authority records.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who want to use the setmqaut command with the -u switch to
    specify the Windows SID instead of the username or groupname.
    
    For example, you have deleted the user or group from the system,
    and need to remove the authority records for that user or group
    afterwards.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Inside the OAM an incorrect check was being made, which ignored
    any request to change an authority record using a SID as the
    key.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The MQ code inside the OAM has been corrected so this invalid
    check no longer occurs.
