Issue/Introduction

  • Just upgraded to MIM 12.5 and also changed command prefix from @ to %
  • This sysplex consists of 2 lpars
  • The % command prefix works on 1 lpar but not the other. Results in IEE305I message

Cause

Another product was currently using the desired command prefix at the time MIM was started and attempted to set CMDPREFIX

Looking through the MIMGR startup log from SYS1 the following messages were generated...

%MIM0137E CMDPREFIX % is already in use
MIM0639E Subsystem command interface disabled; use MODIFY MIMGR for commands

Environment

Release : 12.5
Component : MIM

Resolution

Do one of the following:

  1. Shutdown the other product that is using the desired command prefix and restart MIMGR to allow the command prefix to set and associated with MIMGR
  2. Choose a different character that is not currently in use - Valid Characters for CMDPREFIX
