I have set up a sandbox to test the MQ Adaptor (v6) on IS 6.1 (WinXP) and I am attempting to create a test connection to a WebSphere MQ server (v5.3) on Win2k. I’m a totaly newbie when it comes to MQ, but the installation was straight forward, and the install verifications seemed to go off fine.
I have created a new queue manager (TESTQMANAGER) and also created a new server connection channel (SCC_TEST) via the MQ Explorer GUI. The queue manager and channel are both enabled/running.
When I attempt to create the connection to the queue manager in the “Adapters > WebSphere MQ Adapter > Configure Connection Type” screen of the wM Admin Console, I specify all of these required connection properties:
folder name: A_SANDBOX.MQ_Playpen
connection name: TESTCONNECTION
queue manager name: TESTQMANAGER
host name: ip address of the host machine
TCP/IP port: 1414
server connection channel: SCC_TEST
All of the other fields I either leave blank or leave at the default settings.
After saving the connection and trying to enable it, I receive this error message:
[ART.118.5042] Adapter Runtime (Connection): Unable to enable connection resource A_SANDBOX.MQ_Playpen:TESTCONNECTION.
[ART.118.5036] Adapter Runtime (Connection): Unable to configure connection manager.
Connection to Queue Manager TESTQMANAGER could not be initialized; cc=2,rc=2009.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem could be? The wM admin interface is very simple, so I’m assuming its an MQ settings problem. Its been a few days, and I’ve been unable to find any reference to these error messages online. I’m stumped.
Many thanks in advance!
