If you are having problems with a workgroup server, it may be malfunctioning, or it may lack sufficient privileges to carry out the requested tasks.
Verifying workgroup server operation
Turn on trace mode by entering the command:
nsqmgr –console –mGroupName -t -tc
This trace records all PCF commands, responses, and communication to and from the workgroup server. If the trace contains any error codes, look up the codes listed in IBM’s Programmable System Management (PSM) manual to determine the problem.
Use –ts to trace SQL database operations.
Checking workgroup server parameters
If you suspect a workgroup server has not been given correct parameters, perform the following checks:
- Ensure all necessary environment variables are defined. The Nastel Navigator variable should contain the path for the Nastel Navigator installation.
- Ensure that one group is defined for the workgroup server located in directory [APWMQ_HOME]\group\<group_name>. Groups are defined using the nsqjdbcmk utility.
- Use Nastel Navigator to check the properties.
- Review authorization file permits.ini, in directory [APWMQ_HOME]\config\groups, if the workgroup server is running with the +u option. Review the syntax and the actual commands used, which can affect the ability of a user to execute commands and to see the responses.
- Ensure there is a valid license.
