Error description

  • Set up recording in RIT (on Windows) to use an operation
    definition against an IBM MQ Operation to two local queues on an
    AIX MQ server.  Post an MQMT_REQUEST to the input queue and have
    an application of stub process that and post an MQMT_RESPONSE to
    the reply queue.  Record this operation using dynamic queue
    recording.  Both message are recorded.
    
    However if an alias queue is set up to send messages to the same
    input queue and the same operation used to record, then when an
    MQMT_REQUEST is sent to the alias queue and hence on-wards to
    the input queue the Exit fails to pick up the incoming message
    and only the reply message will be recorded.
