How to install WebSphere MQ on Linux. Fedora 6 Example.

I wanted to install WebSphere MQ on Fedora 6. This article is a log of the process I followed.

You want to skip to day 2 where I got passed my issues.

I used winscp to copy C8472ML.tar to a new folder called /apps/mq/mqinstall

I then used Putty to log into my Liunx box as root.

I then used gzip to decompress the file

gzip -fd *

Then I used tar -xvf ./C8472ML.tar to extract the tar file

This is a listing of the resulting decompress:

ls -ltr

Before installing WebSphere MQ, you must execute ./mqlicense.sh to read and accept the license.



install RPMs

root@websphere mwinstall]# rpm -ivh IBMJava2-SDK-1.4.2-0.0.i386.rpm

root@websphere mwinstall]# rpm -ivh MQSeriesRuntime-6.0.0-0.i386.rpm

root@websphere mwinstall]# rpm -ivh MQSeriesServer-6.0.0-0.i386.rpm

root@websphere mwinstall]# rpm -ivh MQSeriesJava-6.0.0-0.i386.rpm

A new user and group has been created

cat /etc/passwd

mqm:x:502:503::/var/mqm:/bin/bash

cat /etc/group

mqm:x:503:

The installs have created two directories:

/var/mqm


/opt/mqm


My Configuration of WebSphere MQ consisted of following steps:

Creating a queue manager.
Starting my queue manager.
Creating queues and channels.
Starting the command server, listener, and channels

First I will create the Queue Manager on node 01 the hostname will be wmqnode01 the Queue Manager will be called wmqnode01qm

Here is a sample of my hosts file:

[root@websphere mwinstall]# cat /etc/hosts
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.0.60 websphere.fedora6.com websphere wmqnode01
192.168.0.65 websphere2.fedora6.com websphere2 wmqnode02

Switch to wmq user:

su - mqm

I then tired to create the queue manager:

crtmqm wmqnode01qm

AMQ8101: WebSphere MQ error (893) has occurred.

I then looked into /var/mqm/errors to see if I could see what the problem was? but it was not very helpful.

Then tried to ensure I knew what version of WebSphere MQ was installed. I typed: mqve ..

[mqm@websphere bin]$ mqver
mqver has been replaced by the dspmqver command.
See the WebSphere MQ System Administration documentation for details.

I then typed: dspmqver ..

[mqm@websphere bin]$ dspmqver

Name: WebSphere MQ
Version: 6.0.0.0
CMVC level: p000-L050519
BuildType: IKAP - (Production)

I then decided to download the fix pack s form IBM, I am running on an unsupported OS, so I think maybe this will help me get a bit further?

WebSphere 6.0 MQ Fixpacks
http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=171&uid=swg24015717

I downloaded: WebSphere MQ V6.0 Fix Pack 6.0.2.2

WebSphere MQ V6 Linux on x86 platform Fix Pack 6.0.2.2
6.0.2-WS-MQ-LinuxIA32-FP0002.tar.gz (363MB)

I had to login with my IBM username and password and was redirected to:
https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/reg/download.do?lang=en_US&source=wsmq6if&S_PKG=linuxia32&cp=UTF-8#

Even though I have 8MB broadband connection It took a while (3 hours) to download the files, so I left the IBM download manager running over night and went off to watch Blood Diamond DVD I got for Christmas.

I unzipped the downloaded updates

gzip -df 6.0.2-WS-MQ-LinuxIA32-FP0002.tar.gz

then

tar -xvf 6.0.2-WS-MQ-LinuxIA32-FP0002.tar

rpm -ivh IBMJava2-142-ia32-SDK-1.4.2-6.0.i386.rpm

Error?

i then tried to run the create queue command again, forgot to su - mqm

[root@websphere mwinstall]# crtmqm wmqnode01qm
AMQ7077: You are not authorized to perform the requested operation.

su - mqm

[mqm@websphere ~]$ crtmqm wmqnode01qm
AMQ7019: An error occurred while creating or checking the directory structure
for the queue manager.

In talking to my colleagues at work this error sounds like a permission's problem. What I will do is install all the rpm's then try creating a quue manager again. Failing that I will try on Redhat.

You can refer to my document on how I un-installed WebSphere MQ.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Day 2:

What I did was look at the WebSphere MQ Infocentre to see if there were any settings I could tweak and see what IBM had to say as I found the article on developer works did not really help me. I often find that articles on developer works often do not work due to little details being missed out. Especially development articles on WebSphere where article writers use local WebSphere Application servers and not WebSphere ND designs which is what most of us use in the enterprise world.

Mean while back at the ranch...

Creating the user ID and group
Create the required user ID and group ID before you install WebSphere® MQ. Both user ID and group ID must be set to mqm.

After creating user and groups then you can install.

To check groups log in as mqm from root i.g. su -mqm and type groups you should see mqm listed as a group.

It is also suggested that you set the mqm user's home directory to /var/mqm.

cat /etc/passwd = mqm:x:502:503::/var/mqm:/bin/bash
cat /etc/group = mqm:x:503:

Kernel Settings

cat /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

33554432

too low so:

To change the maximum size of a shared memory segment to 256 MB enter:
echo 268435456 > /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

I edited the /etc/sysctl.conf file to persist my changes

#Steve Robinson - Added Kernel Parameters for WebSphere MQ 28-jan-2008
kernel.shmmax = 268435456

cat /proc/sys/kernel/sem
250 32000 32 128

Order: semmsl, semmns, semopm, semni
For WebSphere MQ:
the SEMMSL value must be 128 or greater
the SEMOPM value must be 5 or greater
the SEMMNS value must be 16384 or greater
the SEMMNI value must be 1024 or greater

I edited the /etc/sysctl.conf file to persist my changes
#Steve Robinson - Added Kernel Parameters for WebSphere MQ 28-jan-2008
#Order: semmsl, semmns, semopm, semni
kernel.sem = 250 32000 32 1024

cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max
100728

Install:

Run the mqlicense.sh script. If you want to view a text-only version of the license, which can be read by a screen-reader, type:
./mqlicense.sh -text_onlyThe license is displayed.

If want to accept the license without it being displayed, you can run the mqlicense.sh script with the -accept option.
./mqlicense.sh -accept

You must accept the license agreement before you can proceed with the installation.

Use the rpm -ivh command to install each component that you require. This example shows a minimum installation:
rpm -ivh MQSeriesRuntime-6.0.0-0.i386.rpm MQSeriesServer-6.0.0-0.i386.rpm

If you do not accept the license agreement you will get an error similar to ...

rpm -ivh MQSeriesRuntime-6.0.0-0.i386.rpm MQSeriesServer-6.0.0-0.i386.rpm

Verify installation:

Setting up the installation
To verify your installation you must first perform this task. From a shell window, use these steps to create a queue manager and a queue:
Log in as a user in the mqm group

Create a default queue manager called venus.queue.manager by entering the following command:

crtmqm -q venus.queue.manager. You will see messages telling you that the queue manager has been created, and that the default WebSphere® MQ objects have been created.

AMQ7019 An error occurred while creating the directory structure for the new queue manager.

Explanation: During creation of the queue manager an error occurred while trying to create a file or directory.
User Response: Identify why the queue manager files cannot be created. It is probable that there is insufficient space on the specified disk, or that there is a problem with access control. Correct the problem and submit the command again.

I found this error in my MQ errors page which is a copy of http://middleware.its.state.nc.us/middleware/Documentation/en_US/htm/amqzao03/amqzao030f.htm

I checked the disk space by typing the command:

df -k

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
7459216 7169256 0 100% /

Guess what I feel so ashamed, I forgot that my VMWare image was nearly full due to my WebSphere 6.1 installation. Doh. I feel like an amateur. When I installed MQ

I then did a purge, in fact I removed my rpms and re-installed again to ensure that there was no corruption due to now enough disk space for my WebSphere MQ install. Oh well I'll blame that one on the fact I went off for dinner and did not read my screen before continuing. Good lesson to learn never assume anything, always audit installations. "Assumption is the Mother of all fuck-ups!"

rpm -e MQSeriesRuntime-6.0.0-0 MQSeriesServer-6.0.0-0
error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/__db.000

I then, realised once again I was logged in as mqm, so I loggout back to root, then de-installed the rpm's

[root@websphere mqinstall]# rm /var/mqm -R
rm: descend into directory `/var/mqm'? y
rm: remove directory `/var/mqm/trace'? y
rm: descend into directory `/var/mqm/conv'? y

rm: remove regular empty file `/var/mqm/errors/AMQERR02.LOG'? y
rm: remove regular empty file `/var/mqm/errors/AMQ19505.0.FDC'? y

rm: remove regular empty file `/var/mqm/errors/AMQERR01.LOG'? y
rm: remove directory `/var/mqm/errors'? y
rm: remove regular empty file `/var/mqm/.bash_history'? y
rm: remove directory `/var/mqm/exits64'? y
rm: remove regular file `/var/mqm/service.env'? y
rm: remove directory `/var/mqm'? y

I did not have to remove the /opt/mqm as I was correct it had not installed correctly due to not enough diskspace.

Try install for the third time!

rpm -ivh MQSeriesRuntime-6.0.0-0.i386.rpm MQSeriesServer-6.0.0-0.i386.rpm

# /etc/nsswitch.conf
#
# An example Name Service Switch config file. This file should be

#
# The entry '[NOTFOUND=return]' means that the search for an

#
# Legal entries are:

# db Use the local database (.db) files
# compat Use NIS on compat mode
# hesiod Use Hesiod for user lookups
# [NOTFOUND=return] Stop searching if not found so far
#


#passwd: files
passwd: files nisplus
#group: files
group: files nisplus


I restarted my Linux box.

To state the obviuous, which I knew before I began

Operating System, WebSphere MQ for Linux, Version 6.0 (x86 platform)
WebSphere MQ for Linux, Version 6.0 (x86 platform) has been tested with the following distributions:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux V3.0 plus Update 2
Red Hat Enterprise Linux V4.0
SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) V8 plus Service Pack 3
Note: The MQ Explorer graphical interface is not supported on this operating system.
SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) V9

I have come to an impasse with Fedora, it look like I will have to try RHEL4 after all. The bright side its that I learned a lot about WebSphere MQ installation and Linux from the experience over two nights of tinkering.

---------------------------------------------------

The lines below have not been tried due to my coming to end of my trial of Fedora 6 and WebSphere MQ. Maybe someone will want to continue on from here?

--------------------------------------------------


Update: After thinking for moment I forgot I had not tries the latest fix packs. As mentioned above I had already tried this previously, however I did a minimal install the third time, but did not do a minimal Fix pPack update for runtime ans server.

I ran:

rpm -ivh MQSeriesRuntime-U809950-6.0.2-2.i386.rpm MQSeriesServer-U809950-6.0.2-2.i386.rpm

and I was then able to create a Queue Manager

crtmqm -q venus.queue.manager

Worked fine:

WebSphere MQ queue manager created.
Creating or replacing default objects for venus.queue.manager.
Default objects statistics : 40 created. 0 replaced. 0 failed.
Completing setup.
Setup completed.

Wicked I have my first Queue Manager running in Fedora 6.

----------------------------------------------------

To start the queue manager, type:

strmqm

A message tells you when the queue manager has started.

Enable MQSC commands by typing:

runmqsc


A message tells you that an MQSC session has started. MQSC has no command prompt.

-bash-3.1$ runmqsc
5724-H72 (C) Copyright IBM Corp. 1994, 2005. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
Starting MQSC for queue manager venus.queue.manager.

Define a local queue called ORANGE.QUEUE by entering the following command:

define qlocal (orange.queue)

define qlocal (orange.queue)
2 : define qlocal (orange.queue)
AMQ8006: WebSphere MQ queue created.

A message tells you when the queue has been created.

Stop MQSC by typing:

end

2 : end
1 MQSC commands read.
All valid MQSC commands were processed.

You will see some messages, followed by the command prompt.
You have now defined:

A default queue manager called venus.queue.manager
A queue called ORANGE.QUEUE
