Polly, I can tell you from extensive personal experience with clustered queue managers in V5.3 that there's a bunch of issues that cropped up. First, get to the latest CSD (CSD03) ASAP. And always upgrade your repository queue managers first!
<<< A word to the rest of you folks... MQ 5.2 CSD06 is VERY stable and doesn't have all the cluster problems. So if you're running clusters, hang tight and wait for CSD04 of MQ5.3 before moving your clusters forward >>> Now, as far as your specific problem, be sure that you don't have any manually defined CLUSSDR channels pointing at your HP box. This confuses the HP QM and will cause it not to act as you would expect in the cluster. I just worked a similar problem and this was what someone had done. The other thing to do is issue a REFRESH CLUSTER command on your HP queue manager and then check the channel status of your channels pointing at the W2K repository and your HP CLUSRCVR. Make sure the LSTMSGTI and LSTMSGDA are recent. That ensures that the HP is getting refreshed from the repository. The 2189 indicates your HP is not talking with either of your two full repositories. Again, this could be because of a manually defined CLUSSDR (mentioned above) or because your W2K repositories for some reason don't recognize the HP. Also check the output of DISPLAY CLUSQMGR(*) on the HP and note what it says. If none of this proves fruitful, don't wait to call IBM and open a record. These problems tend to be nasty and convoluted! Good Luck! Gary --------------------------- Gary J. Ward Senior Consulting Engineer Information Design, Inc.

Everything is up and started. I can see all the qmanagers on the full repositories, but now the partial repository on the HP is generating a 2189 when I try to put a message to any clustered queue in the environment. The clussdr and clusrcvr are running from the HP to the full repo in the Win2000 server. Everything is communicating fine except the HP. I cannot start a channel from the partial repos to the HP, but can everywhere else. This all was working fine until I created the new qmanagers on the AIX servers. I have tried rebuilding the full repositories and this did not help. To summarize: Partial repo on HP is not working properly and I am getting a 2189 when I try to put a message to a clustered queue. All of the other full and partial repos are working fine. Does HP require something special when running 5.3? Polly Siegman Unix System Administrator PerotSystems @ Owens&Minor Ph.
