  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If your Websphere MQ transport is configured to use the MQ Exit
    for recording, illegal characters can be passed to the queue
    manager namelist.
    
    If your operation queue name contains an illegal character such
    as the asterisk *, when you start recording in Recording Studio
    this is added to the MQ queue manager namelist.
    
    This can result in problems starting the queue manager.
    
    These namelist entries might not be removed when you stop
    recording, and might need to be removed manually.
