I am new to IBM MQ but I am slowly learning the in-and-outs. I especially like the command line utils. My primary job is as a .Net programmer but I have been asked to support MQ so I'll give it my best shot.
Recently, I have been asked to copy specific queues from our DEV environment to our TEST\QA environment under different QueueMGRS. DEV and TEST are on different servers. I would like to export the definition to a file then move the file and import it on to the other server into the other queue mgr. I have Googled the heck out of this and cannot find an answer. I found out how to copy messages from one queue to another. And, how to copy a full Queue Mgr into another Queue Mgr. But, I cannot find a way to copy just the queue definition. Is there a way to do this? I am looking for something like:
DEFINE QLOCAL (MYQASERVER.QMGR_AAA.QUEDEF) LIKE (MYDEVSERVER.BBB_QMGR.QUEDEF)
...or...
dmpmqmsg -m BBB_QMGR -i QUEDEF -f c:\myfile.txt
then move the file to the TEST\QA server then run
dmpmqmsg -m QMGR_AAA -o QUEDEF -f c:\myfile.txt
The later (above) will only move messages. I feel like I am close. How do I just move the queue definition?
Thanks --Marty

I asked Mr. Google "IBM MQ export queue definitions" and he told me this.

Obviously you don't want the optional part about moving the messages.

Ok. So just in case this might help someone else out here is what I did. I ran:
We are on ver 9.1 so I used:
dmpmqcfg -m QMgr -a > dmpmqcfg.out.all.mqsc
and sent all of the Q Manager definitions into that file. Next I opened the file with Notepad.
Inside of the file, I found all of the DEFINE QLOCAL statements (or QREMOTE) for the queues that I needed.
Next, I copied those DEFINE scripts into a separate textfile called QueScripts.txt on the new server.
Lastly, I ran:
runmqsc MYQA_MQMANAGER < QueScripts.txt
That script-block ran all of the commands that I need to add those queues.
Worked like charm. Thanks.

you can use the command that MartyITT provided and export ALL definitions and then manually go copy what you need.

Or you can alter the dmpmqcfg to return only what you need, for example, if you just need 1 queue or a few queues with similar naming:

Code:

dmpmqcfg -m Qmgr -x object -n QUEUE.1

use with wildcards is also possible:
dmpmqcfg -m Qmgr -x object -n QUEUE*



If you are migrating an object it is also recommended that you include all OAM, CHLAUTH, . definitions to have correct authorisation on the other side as well. use the "-x all" property for this

Code:
dmpmqcfg -m Qmgr -x all -n QUEUE.1
