Hi,

I have created a vagrant virtual machine in my Windows 7, installed MQ8, crteated a queue manager called ACPDC1, I am able to connect to that QM from MQ Explorer in my windows.

Now, how to test transferring files ?

Thanks, I am new here, learning, please your help is appreciated

Take a look at the Managed File Transfer documentation in the MQ v8 Knowledge Center:

https://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSFKSJ_8.0.0/com.ibm.wmqfte.doc/wmqfte_intro.htm?lang=en

And the "Configuring for first use" section:

In a very brief nutshell you need to:

- Run fteSetupCoordination command specifying the appropriate options, then execute the resulting MQSC file against your queue manager

- Run the fteSetupCommands command specifying the appropriate options

- Run the fteCreateAgent twice to create two agents (again specifying the appropriate options) and run the MQSC file for each agent against your queue manager.

You are now setup in terms of basic configuration. Then you can start your agents using the fteStartAgent command and request a file transfer (either via the CL using the fteCreateTransfer command or via the Explorer GUI MFT plug-in).

All of the commands with example usage are fully and clearly documented in the Knowledge Center.

Thanks lot, this is very helpful , I don't know why the ibm documentation is to big for me.

my first command :

Code:

fteSetupCoordination -coordinationQMgr QM_COORD
                               -coordinationQMgrHost localhost
                               -coordinationQMgrPort 1414
                               -coordinationQMgrChannel SYSTEM.DEF.SVRCONN


I have thre questions :

1)for the coordinationQMgrChannel, which one is better to use SYSTEM.DEF.SVRCONN or create your own ?

2)Because I am new in linux and WMQ, let say I execute the above command, is there any way to delete the QM_COORD or if I do the same command with different prperties it will overwrite the it ?

3)You said " execute the resulting MQSC file against your queue manage"
did you mean against the coordination queue manager QM_COORD ?
Thanks.

I meant what the difference between creating a new channel and using the system one ?

From a security point of view, SYSTEM.DEF.SVRCONN should be blocked from use by anyone or any app.

when I did :

Code:

fteSetupCoordination -coordinationQMgr QM_COORD
                               -coordinationQMgrHost localhost
                               -coordinationQMgrPort 1414
                               -coordinationQMgrChannel SYSTEM.DEF.SVRCONN


I did not see the new QM_COORD

Code:

-bash-4.1$ cd /var/mqm/qmgrs/
-bash-4.1$ ls
ACPDC1  @SYSTEM
-bash-4.1$


Is that because I used SYSTEM.DEF.SVRCONN ?

Thanks.

The fteSetupCoordination command does not create a new queue manager.

You specify as an argument to it an existing queue manager that you want to use in the MFT "Coordination" role for your MFT topology. (The terms "Agent queue manager", "Command queue manager" and "Coordination queue manager" should really be thought of a roles played by one or more existing queue managers.)

In your case, you said you created one queue manager "ACPDC1" that you want to use for all the coordination, command and agent roles. So specify that.

You really need to read the docs (as already suggested) and perhaps the getting started FTE readbook:

http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/pdfs/sg247760.pdf

(FTE turned into MFT when it got rolled into the MQ product at v7.5)
