MQSeries - queue manager cannot be started RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm at a client that has Dev, QA, and Prod all running on the same MQ Server, but does have 3 different BizTalk Servers.  We have plans to fix that, but it will take a few months, and for today, I need to learn how to deal with the existing environment.

    I was having problems with one of our vendor feeds, and was going to start and restart one of the DEV queue managers.  It stopped, and now will not start.

    AMQ8041: The queue manager cannot be restarted or deleted because processes,
    that were previously connected, are still running.
    Process 1884 is still running.
    AMQ7018: The queue manager operation cannot be completed.

    Process 1884 is the BizTalk dllhost.exe.  Can I kill it?  Will it restart?  What impact will that have on the Prod Queue Managers? 

    The old BT2002 white paper on MQ mentions an MMC snap-in.  Does that exist with BT2010 on the MQ machine?

  • I eventually did attempt to kill the process.  I'm not sure if it didn't die, or another popped up immediately (I didn't make a note of the process number at that time).  Thus I had to reboot the MQ Server.

  • Hey Lloyd, got this error again today.  Did the ball drop on getting me some help there?

  • Is this actually Host Integration Server (HIS) related?

    Also, could you provide the link to the white paper you mentioned?
