Remapping MQM Evidences for Websphere MQ

Class 2

Customers should be aware and be prepared

Change Summary

Flexera are making changes for evidence recognition for Websphere MQ on Sun Solaris to address a reported problem with false positives. Common installer evidences with display name 'mqm' have been causing false recognition for MQ Server.  This component however is shared with both Server and Client, and cannot not be relied upon for recognition purposes. Existing evidence mappings for 'mqm' are ambiguous and are being remapped to WebSphere MQ (Unknown component).

Note that recognition of 'mqm' installer evidence is working as expected for the server installation recognition on Linux and HPUX platforms

Impact

Customers who are running Websphere MQ on Sun Solaris need to be aware that the following installer evidences are being remapped from Websphere MQ Server to Websphere MQ (Unknown Component).  

This may cause Websphere MQ license consumption to change as consumption may reduce. Customers should review their licenses to ensure it is configured to charge against the highest used peak consumption.  

A list of the evidences in scope for remapping are in the table below

These changes will be part of the ARL Release for January 1st 2021
