  • 1.  MQ version Upgrade on IBMi

    Posted Mon May 22, 2023 02:10 PM

    Dear MQ Support Community,

    I am reaching out to seek guidance and assistance regarding an upcoming upgrade of my IBM OS400 version from V7R3 to V7R4. The challenge I am facing is that my current MQ version is no longer supported on V7R4.

    In my environment, I have a single queue manager and a significant number of queues and channels. I am seeking advice, recommendations, and an upgrade guide for upgrading IBM MQ on IBMi specifically.

    If anyone within the community has experience with upgrading IBM MQ on IBMi or possesses knowledge of relevant resources or best practices, I would greatly appreciate your insights. Any guidance on the proper steps, considerations, or potential challenges associated with this upgrade would be immensely valuable.

    I understand that each environment may have its unique considerations, but any general advice, experiences, or pointers to official documentation or resources would be highly beneficial.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance and support. I am eager to learn from the collective wisdom of the community and successfully navigate this upgrade process.
