Error AMQ8101: WebSphere MQ error (893) has occured. (when creating an MQ Manager)
Posted on 2004-08-14
I am a little new to unix, and brand new to WebSphere MQ. I intalled WebSphere MQ v5.3 on my unix server and cannot create an MQ manager. I get the following error when running the command crtmqm -q mq1 - AMQ8101: WebSphere MQ error (893) has occured. I have googled the error and found one solution, but I don't understand it. I need to get this fixed in a hurry!
The solution was:
"The system I originally wanted to install MQ on has experienced both of these faults. The second system I installed on also suffered the same fate. The third system was an older Mandrake installation which worked fine but for other reasons was somewhat awkward to use. Having compared the trace above with a successful one taken from the third machine, I discovered that the next thing "crtmqm" did was to go and start looking for the NIS+ libraries. Sure enough, "/etc/nsswitch.conf" had the relevant "nisplus" entries for "passwd" and "group". If the "nisplus" keyword is added to "passwd" and "group" on the two systems which previously failed to work, both start working and the "crtmqm" command completes successfully."
I went into the file nssswitch.conf, but it did not have the "nisplus" entry.
Also in the solution, there is a claim that: "This error is not caused by the NPTL library as has been suggested elsewhere."
If anyone has any idea, please let me know!
