Env var issue

I am using RHEL 6.5

From this site:


It says to set the following env var


Open in new window

But when ido I get the following error:

[root@x240perf2 etc]# set MQSERVER=SYSTEM.ADMIN.SVRCONN/TCP/
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

Open in new window

How do I resolve this?

Your problem is because its a windows example (i can see this due to the % in the next command : ECHO %MQSERVER%)
Under linux , just use this :
echo $MQSERVER (will show you the result)


echo $MQSERVER (will show you the result)

Dont forget double quotes ;)
