Hi

Is it possible to display all content of a queue manager and use that as input for a define command?

I'm going to upgrade (uninstall old version and install new version) a queue manager on AIX for the first time. For that purpose I need to recreate all the definitions.

I would like to create some define statements from the outout of display commands. But the display commands output is not listet in one column and the syntax isn't useful.

Is there a good way to do this?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards
Rasmus

later versions of mw use the

dmpmqcfg

command.

For earlier versions the

saveqmgr

support pack will do.

Every time you reinvent the wheel the more square it gets (anon). If in doubt think and investigate before you ask silly questions.

Hello the dmpmqcfg command is documented here : https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSFKSJ_8.0.0/com.ibm.mq.ref.adm.doc/q083160_.htm

Get the latest version from https://github.com/ibm-messaging/ms03.saveqmgr (last version, baring someone else's effort)

Thanks for the quick replys. I will look into it.
We are running MQ version 7.0.1.0 and are upgrading to 8.0.0.6.

Do you know if I can use the output from saveqmgr and import it into 8.0.0.6?

Yes, I know...

And yes, you can.

Also, dmpmqcfg has a client version. That may be more suitable.

Have you checked the upgrade path for 8.0.0? Is it possible to migrate directly from 7.0.1 without recreating the qmgr?

I haven't checked to be honest. I successfully upgraded from v6 -> v9 on Windows, but haven't tried on AIX as I don't have the skills to do it. I have some colleagues that usually does the software upgrades, and my predecessor configured MQ.

This time we have to "move" the queue manager, as the hardware is upgraded as well. So the qmgr dump seems like the perfect solution.

Thank you all - I will try saveqmgr on the old MQ version we have running.

OK. Create the new qmgr using the same command line parameters as the old one. Review qm.ini customisations and exits (if used).

Review all the saved object definitions before running on the new qmgr. Usually the SYSTEM objects should not be migrated, unless you have customisations. Check all channel definitions, particularly connection addresses.
You should also migrate the MQ authority profiles.
Review all new features in v8 to see if any further setup needs to be done.
