HI,
As part of MQ monitoring i have written few scripts and wanted to schedule them on Prod AIX servers, unfortunately on my Prod server the Email feature has been Disabled, so the scripts are not sending any mail notifications.
The Unix team is NOT ok to enable the mail feature on the servers.

Can i use the same scripts on Test AIX servers and connect to Prod qmgrs , if so is there any command to connect to the remote queue managers?

I dont have any channel connectivity to PROD and TEST qmgrs, and dont want to do any changes on the prod qmgrs.
4 qmgrs on 4 different servers.All 4 are in cluster.

MY MQ version is 8.0.0.9,

It's the same way you connect to a local (same server) queue manager, you just need to use the client libraries not the bindings ones, and specify the remote details as you would for any client.

But I bet your network people will NOT be ok about opening up the firewall to allow you (and anyone else) access to PROD from a less secure TEST environment.

You'd also need a server connection channel on the PROD queue manager that your script can connect to (which is not the same as the channel between TEST & PROD queue managers you mention not having). This channel needs to allow access from a non-prod IP address and the level of access to the PROD queue manager that your script needs.

The MQ admin for the PROD queue managers will NOT be ok with that in all likelihood.

I'd modify your scripts to write to the syslog daemon, or call out to the existing PROD monitoring tool (which may in fact be reading the syslog to identify problems) rather than email. Your Unix team will be happier scheduling those.

Possibly, but you should never have anything in Test that refers to Prod. There are a multitude of reasons why this is a bad idea.
