Hi,

We are moving off to a new linux server and we need to move the existing queue manager lying on AIX also to linux. Is there any shortcut or method to migrate queue manager from one system to another?

The queue manager is built on MQ7.X and the new system has MQ9

What does "the existing queue manager" mean?

That is, exactly what do you need to move/copy/restore to the new queue manager?

The queue manager is present on AIX and is there an option to move it to Linux (bringing all the objects along)...

What does "all the objects" mean?

Be *specific*. There are several things that could be done. But not all of them are good ideas, and not all of them do what you want them to do.

Okay Sorry.
The queues, the channels, the processes, the system definitions and the security setup on the qmgr

So you just want to dump the mq cfg, and you don't want to copy messages?

then dmpmqcfg.

Create the qmgr on Linux using same crtmqm args as were used on AIX.
Review and edit the dmpmqcfg output from AIX, and feed it to runmqsc on Linux. Ensure all channel defs, OAM authorities and channel authorities are appropriate for the Linux server.
Review and migrate any customisations to qm.ini file.
Review exits (if used).
Review SSL KDB (if used).
Review MQ v9 new features.
