RHEL 6 and WebSphere Message Broker install

I installed RHEL 6, and then isntalled WMB, and got the following warning:

Press 1 for Next, 2 for Previous, 3 to Cancel or 4 to Redisplay [1] 1

Installing IBM WebSphere Message Broker 7.0. Please wait...

0%         25%         50%         75%        100%

Please wait...

The InstallShield Wizard has successfully installed IBM WebSphere Message
Broker 7.0. Choose Finish to exit the wizard.

Press 3 to Finish or 4 to Redisplay [3]

Open in new window

Hoping the warning is not significant, I create a broker:

bash-4.1$ pwd
bash-4.1$ whoami
bash-4.1$ . ./mqsiprofile


bash-4.1$ ./mqsicreatebroker LINUXQM -q LINUXQM
(LINUXQM.mqsicreatebroker)[1]BIP2229W: Warning: abend file directory (/var/mqsi/common/errors) open failed: errno 2. Using directory /tmp 0

BIP8011E: Unable to create the components configuration data.
The command is unable to store the component's configuration data.
Ensure that the userid that is running this command has adequate authority to update the configuration or registry files. Without this authority the registry or configuration files cannot be updated.  Also check that the broker name does not contain invalid characters or is too long.

Open in new window

I have adequite permission (su mqm), but the directory is not there:

bash-4.1$ cd /var/mqsi
bash-4.1$ cd common
bash: cd: common: No such file or directory
bash-4.1$ ls

Open in new window

Is there a Linux package I need to install, or some other issue ?

Any ideas how I can resolve this ?

I suggest you create these directories manually (with 777 permissions to be safe for initial testing) as a workaround?:


and then try to create a broker again?

It works.

I also had to create /var/mqsi/commmon/log

Also found out that WMB isupports RHEL 6, but not WMB
