Hi,

Is there a way not to show the userID/password in the XAopenstring in clear? I am using DB2. both MQ and DB2 is running on windows 2008 R2 on a different machine.

Saw something from infocenter but think this is applicable if MQ and DB2 runs on the same machine.

Thanks

So you're talking about
Quote:
If you have not specified a user name and password on the xa_open string, the user under which the queue manager is running is used by DB2 to authenticate the xa_open call.


That doesn't depend, as far as I know, on where DB2 is running.

You need to reconsider the security implications of putting the username and password into the qm.ini file. That is, you need to think very hard about who actually ends up having read access to this file, and why that does or does not represent a security issue.

Hi,

I am running on windows 2008, so as long as the user have access to MQ explorer, it can view the username and password from MQ explorer. But in the project which i am working on, there is two different team, the app and DBA. the process here allows only DBA to have access to the password.

any workaround?

Thanks
