Hi All,

We have recently upgraded the Mq client installed on Windows host from version 9.1.3.0 to 9.1.4.0

After upgrade however, the output of the dspmqinst command shows up the below name value pair apart from the others.

LicenseType : Unknown

Note that this pair was not appearing when it was 9.1.3.0

Usually it appears as LicenseType: Production.

Is there anything wrong here ?

Two new output pairs have been added to dspmqinst in MQ V9.1.4
Code:
LicenseType: Production | Trial | Beta | Developer
Entitlement: ??


Knowledge Center description of dspmqinst has the following to say:-

IBM Knowledge Center wrote:
dspmqinst also displays information about license entitlement for each installation. The command displays the license type (Production, Trial, Beta, or Developer) and the licensed entitlement required for the IBM MQ installation. The required entitlement is reported based on the components that are installed and usage information that has been specified using the setmqinst command (see setmqinst (set IBM MQ installation)). See IBM MQ license information for more information about license types and entitlement.


What are the other details of the installation that shows "LicenseType: Unknown"? Is it quite old for example? I suspect you should report this one to IBM.

Cheers,
Morag

We have patched this host yesterday. Below is the ouput of dspmqinst after we upgraded to the 9140

InstName: Installation1
InstDesc: IMB MQ CLient
Identifier: 1
InstPath: <INST_PATH>
Version: 9.1.4.0
Primary: Yes
State: Available
LicenseType: Unknown
Entitlement: IBM MQ Client
MSIProdCode: {prod_code}
MSIMedia: 9.1.4 Client
MSIInstanceId: 1

================
Today I have gone through the error logs , to see find any clue. I can see below entry was appeared as the latest :

AMQ8576I : 'Installation1' (<instPath>) set as the primary installation. You must restart the operating system to complete the update.

I have then restarte the host todday & checked the dspmqinst output. However no luck . Still same output.

OS is "Windows server 2012 R2 Server Standard Edition, Build 9600"

I have also checked the "Event Viewer (System) " logs to seeif any MQ related logs apeared. However I dont see any.

I don't see anything that you are doing incorrectly here - I think you should report this to IBM.

I hadn't even noticed that dspmqver also reports LicenseType (and has done since at least V9.1.0 perhaps longer!). Does it show the same?

Anyway, do let us know the outcome of any PMR you raise.

Cheers,
Morag

I wonder if it is due to a V8 to V9 upgrade vs a V9 install. What would dspmqinst have to say?

The dspmqinst output is the entire question - scroll up a bit to see the output from dspmqinst.

I don't see any license type in dspmqinst:
Code:
InstName:      mq91
InstDesc:      mq91
Identifier:    3
InstPath:      D:\mq\mq91
Version:       9.1.0.4
Primary:       No
State:         Available
MSIProdCode:   {5D3ECA81-BF8D-4E80-B36C-CBB1D69BC110}
MSIMedia:      9.1 Server
MSIInstanceId: 1

However I do see it in dspmqver

Code:
Name:        IBM MQ
Version:     9.1.0.4
Level:       p910-004-191122
BuildType:   IKAP - (Production)
Platform:    IBM MQ for Windows (x64 platform)
Mode:        64-bit
O/S:         Windows 10 Unknown x64 Edition, Build 18362
InstName:    mq91
InstDesc:    mq91
Primary:     No
InstPath:    D:\mq\mq91
DataPath:    D:\mqdata
MaxCmdLevel: 910
LicenseType: Developer

Note there are a number (2) of other installations, use the '-i' parameter to display them.


This is why I was asking for dspmqinst because I wanted to know if it was the only installation. Looking by the instname shown by OP it is....
Looking at the fact this seems to be a client only installation (see OP's post) does it really matter what the LicenseType is?

I don't see any license type in dspmqinst:

Perhaps too much egg nog? Start reading from the beginning of the thread. The OP has seen LicenseType in dspmqinst - something that is newly added in V9.1.4 - and is asking why it says "Unknown".

Merry Christmas,
Morag

Oh I see added in 9.1.4...
Again should it matter on a client only installation?
The field is clearly intended for a server installaion...

Hi Morag / All ,

The argument "LicenseType" is not showing in the output of dspmqver.
Regarding the particular host , that I have mentioned earlier, its was having single MQ Client installation at 9.1.3 0 . We have upgraded the same to the 9.1.4.0.

When it was 9.1.3, that argument LicenseType itself was not there and when I have upgraded it to 9.1.4. LicenseType appeared with value as "Unknown"

Since it was a single installation , after upgrade I haven't unset/set the primary installation & restarted host. I thought this might be the cause . So yesterday I have done 1. Unset 2. Set 3. restart the host , sequentially. However no luck.


Apart from that , here is another observation of mine with MQ server on Windows:
1. Instllation1: The current MQ Version was 9.1.3 ( LicenseType & Entitlement attributes were not showing in dspmqinst for this )

2. Instllation2 : We have multi installed installed the 9.1.4 in the new path ( LicenseType & Entitlement attributes were not showing in dspmqinst for this )

3. Then we unset the installation1 & then executed the dspmqinst command & this time both these arguments were showing for both installations & the only difference is :
Installation1 : 9.1.3
LicenseType : Production
Entitlement : Unknown

Installation2 : 9.1.4
LicenseType : Produciton
Entitlement : MQ Server
(Not restarted the host till this moment)

4. After #3 I have restarted the host ( as it was asked after setmqinst -i command execution ) and migrated the existing queue manger to 9.1.4 in regular ways.

Not sure if its expected behaviour.

The only major difference I can see in my both the observations is :
1. MQ Client Upgrade : Upgraded the existing installation (LicenseType value becomes "Unknown" & Entitlement value becomes IBM MQ Client )

2. MQ Server Upgrade : Installed 9.1.4 in separate path . (LicenseType value becomes "Production" & Entitlement value becomes IBM MQ Client )

Since Knowledge Center says "The command displays the license type (Production, Trial, Beta, or Developer)", it is clear that either Knowledge Center should include "Unknown" in that list if this is correct behaviour, or that it should say one of the four listed values. Or perhaps that there is another value that should be displayed for the client since the current list of values don't really seem applicable.

Either way, you should report it to IBM. Do let us know the outcome of your PMR.

P.S. Since these fields were only added in V9.1.4, they will likely only be displayed if you are running the dspmqinst command from the V9.1.4 libraries.

Cheers,
Morag

I agree with Morag. Entitlement type of MQ Server should definitely take precedence over MQ Client when both are present...

Please open a PMR, reference the thread and report.

Thanks
