Problem putting msg on Remote Queue of Websphere MQ

Posted on 2008-10-06
Last Modified: 2013-12-17

I have been assigned a task to upload files to a Websphere MQ. I have no background of MQ before.
1.  I installed the MQ server in my XP machine.
2. Two Queue Manager is created in my machine.
3. There are few local & remote queue created.
4. I can put test messages in QM1 & I can see the same message in QM2 when I browse message in QM2.
5. Now I am trying to run the sample program to connect the queue programatically.
6. The MQ is configured with One local Queue, One Transmission Queue, two Remote Queue.

My attached code snippet is working when accessing the local queue but cannot access the local queue.

Ok now I have tried the following to access the remote queue but with no success

MQQueue system_default_local_queue = qMgr.AccessQueue("FormatName:Direct=TCP:\\msmq\\Private$\\Q.EZL01.SEP.CMCC.001.S1", openOptions);

Please help me. I am very confused about the parameter I am passing to the above program.

Thanks in advance
using System;

using IBM.WMQ;


public class MQSample1


    private String qManager = "QMQB01"; //define name of queue

    //manager to connect to.

    private MQQueueManager qMgr;  //define a queue manager object


    static void Main(string[] args)


        new MQSample1();


    public MQSample1()







            //Create a connection to the queue manager

            qMgr = new MQQueueManager(qManager);


            //Set up the options on the queue we wish to open...

            //Note.All WebSphere MQ Options are prefixed with MQC

            int openOptions = MQC.MQOO_INPUT_AS_Q_DEF | MQC.MQOO_OUTPUT;


            //Now specify the queue that we wish to open,

            //and the open options...

            MQQueue system_default_local_queue = qMgr.AccessQueue("Q.QB01.SEP.MAQS.002.S1", openOptions);


            //Define a simple WebSphere MQ message,and write some text in UTF format..

            MQMessage hello_world = new MQMessage();

            hello_world.WriteUTF("Hello World!");


            //specify the message options...

            MQPutMessageOptions pmo = new MQPutMessageOptions(); //accept the defaults,


            //same as MQPMO_DEFAULT

            //put the message on the queue

            system_default_local_queue.Put(hello_world, pmo);


            //get the message back again...

            //First define a WebSphere MQ message buffer to receive the message into..

            MQMessage retrievedMessage = new MQMessage();

            retrievedMessage.MessageId = hello_world.MessageId;


            //Set the get message options...

            MQGetMessageOptions gmo = new MQGetMessageOptions(); //accept the defaults

            //same as MQGMO_DEFAULT


            //get the message off the queue...

            system_default_local_queue.Get(retrievedMessage, gmo);

            //And prove we have the message by displaying the UTF message text

            String msgText = retrievedMessage.ReadUTF();

            Console.WriteLine("The message is:" + msgText);

            //Close the queue...


            //Disconnect from the queue manager



        //If an error has occurred in the above,try to identify what went wrong


        //Was it a WebSphere MQ error?

        catch (MQException ex)


            Console.WriteLine("A WebSphere MQ error occurred :Completion code " +

            ex.CompletionCode + "Reason code " + ex.ReasonCode);


        //Was it a System error?

        catch (System.Exception ex)


            Console.WriteLine("A System error occurred:" + ex);

MQ allows you to put messages both local and remote queue.
You can GET message ONLY from local queue.

Ok, I myself could solve the problem.

For the remote queue the openOption cannot be "MQC.MQOO_INPUT_AS_Q_DEF "
