Questions about our software and IBM MQ
Is it OK to use an older version of an MQGem Software product than my queue manager?
The following MQGem products don't care what the version of the queue manager is; QLOAD, Q, and MQEdit.
MQSCX will happily connect to newer queue managers, issue the new commands, and parse the responses, but tab-auto-complete will not be possible for any new fields.
MO71 will warn you if it detects a queue manager newer than it supports. You can continue to run, but new fields are not shown in dialogs, and are not available for export.
MQEV will refuse to start if it detects a queue manager newer than it supports. You can forcibly over-write this by using the -c flag if you are certain that the new IBM MQ version does not introduce any new fields types. It will still collect the data, but any fields will not be displayed by their MQSC field name.
In all cases, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest version on this website.
