IBM MQ moving messages from error queue

Hi

We recently had a network outage which caused a number of messages to be directed to the error queue.

Is it possible to move these messages to another queue with the version of IBM MQ we have installed?

Version Details

Version: 7.0.1.7

By "error queue", are you talking about the Dead Letter Queue (DLQ)?
If so, you might want to take a look at the runmqdlq utility:

runmqdlq - Start the dead-letter queue handler to monitor and process messages on the dead-letter queue.

or possibly the amqsdlq (the sample DLQ handler)

IBM used to provide support packs with the q and qload tools in them.  Maybe you already have them loaded.  If so, these tools can be used to move messages between queues.  

IBM doesn't supply them as support packs any more, but you can still get the open source versions of the tools and compile them yourself.  You need to compile them under Linux:

https://github.com/ibm-messaging/mq-q-qload/tree/master/src

Note: qload is part of WMQ 8.0, renamed dmpmqmsg.

There is also a commercial version of qload that is very inexpensive for a single user,and also has a trial option available:

Other third party commercial tools also exist, including MQ Visual Edit (has a 30 day trial):
