Following steps help in setting up MFT agents across two machines to initiate a file transfer between those two machines.
Two agents will be created one on Machine1 and the other on Machine2. We will have a setup of 2 queue managers.
AGENT1QM – AGENT1 Queue Manager – On Machine1 – machine1.com
AGENG2QM – AGENT2 Queue Manager which also acts as the Coordination and Command Queue Managers – On Machine2 – machine2.com – user:mftuser

Step 1: Create OS user by name “mftuser” on both the machines.
login using “mftuser”
Step 2: Create AGENT1QM on the machine1 with port 1414 and set appropriate authorities on the queue manager and queue manager objects
• crtmqm AGENT1QM
• strmqm AGENT1QM
• define listener(L1) trptype(TCP) port(1414)
• start listener(L1)
• def channel(AGENT1.SVRCONN) CHLTYPE(SVRCONN)
• DEFINE QLOCAL(AGENT2QM) DESCR(‘Transmission queue to AGENT2QM’)
REPLACE USAGE(XMITQ) PUT(ENABLED) GET(ENABLED)
INITQ(SYSTEM.CHANNEL.INITQ)
• DEFINE CHANNEL(AGENT1QM_AGENT2QM) CHLTYPE(SDR) TRPTYPE(TCP)
CONNAME(‘machine2.com (1415)’) XMITQ(AGENT2QM) REPLACE
DESCR(‘Sender channel to AGENT1 QM’)
• DEFINE CHANNEL(AGENT2QM_AGENT1QM) CHLTYPE(RCVR) TRPTYPE(TCP)
REPLACE DESCR(‘Receiver channel from AGENT2 Queue Manager’)
• Set the user authorities on the queue manager
• setmqaut -m AGENT1QM -t qmgr -p “mftuser” -all
• setmqaut -m AGENT1QM -t qmgr -p “mftuser” +ctrl +connect +inq
• Create channel authentication record for the user “mftuser”
• SET CHLAUTH(‘AGENT1.SVRCONN’) TYPE(USERMAP) CLNTUSER(‘mftuser’)
USERSRC(MAP) MCAUSER(‘mftuser’) CHCKCLNT(REQUIRED) ACTION(ADD)
• REFRESH SECURITY(*)
• Set the user authorities on the transmission queue
• setmqaut -m AGENT1QM -n “AGENT2QM” -t q -p “mftuser” -remove
• setmqaut -m AGENT1QM -n “AGENT2QM” -t q -p “mftuser” +dsp +browse +get +inq +put +set

Step 3: Create AGENT2QM on the Machine2 with port 1415
• crtmqm AGENT2QM
• strmqm AGENT2QM
• define listener(L1) trptype(TCP) port(1415)
• start listener(L1)
• def channel(AGENT2.SVRCONN) CHLTYPE(SVRCONN)
• DEFINE QLOCAL(AGENT1QM) DESCR(‘Transmission queue to AGENT1QM’)
REPLACE USAGE(XMITQ) PUT(ENABLED) GET(ENABLED)
INITQ(SYSTEM.CHANNEL.INITQ)
• DEFINE CHANNEL(AGENT2QM_AGENT1QM) CHLTYPE(SDR) TRPTYPE(TCP)
CONNAME(‘ machine1.com (1414)’) XMITQ(AGENT1QM) REPLACE
DESCR(‘Sender channel to AGENT1 QM’)
• DEFINE CHANNEL(AGENT1QM_AGENT2QM) CHLTYPE(RCVR) TRPTYPE(TCP)
REPLACE DESCR(‘Receiver channel from AGENT1 Queue Manager’)
• Create Channel authentication record for user “mftuser”
• SET CHLAUTH(AGENT2.SVRCONN) TYPE(USERMAP) CLNTUSER(‘mftuser’)
USERSRC(MAP) MCAUSER(‘ mftuser’) CHCKCLNT(REQUIRED) ACTION(ADD)
• Set the user authorities on the queue manager for user
“mftuser”
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -t qmgr -p “mftuser” -all
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -t qmgr -p “mftuser” +ctrl +connect +inq
• Set the user authorities on the transmission queue
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -n “AGENT1QM” -t q -p “mftuser” -remove
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -n “AGENT1QM” -t q -p “mftuser” +dsp
+browse +get +inq +put +set
• Set the user authorities on the Server Connection channel
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -n “AGENT2.SVRCONN” -t chl -p “mftuser”
-remove
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -n “AGENT2.SVRCONN” -t chl -p “mftuser”
+chg +dlt +dsp +ctrl +ctrlx
• START CHANNEL(AGENT2QM_AGENT1QM)
Step 4: Start the channel on AGENT1QM queue manager
• START CHANNEL(AGENT1QM_AGENT2QM)
Step 5: Make sure Sender- Receiver channels are in running state on both the queue managers
Step 6: Copy the MQMFTCredentials.xml file from samples directory to user home
directory on the machine where AGENT2QM is running. Add the
following tag into the file
<tns:mqmftCredentials
xmlns:tns=”http://wmqfte.ibm.com/MQMFTCredentials”
xmlns:xsi=”http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance”
xsi:schemaLocation=”http://wmqfte.ibm.com/MQMFTCredentials
MQMFTCredentials.xsd”><tns:qmgr
name=”AGENT2QM” user=”mftuser” mqUserId=”mftuser”
mqPassword=”admin@123″ />
</tns:mqmftCredentials>

In the above tag
name: name of the agent queue manager/coordination queue manager.
user: logged-in user name of the machine
mqUserId: mq userid
Step 7: Copy the MQMFTCredentials.xml file from samples directory to user home directory on the machine where AGENT1QM is running. Add the following tag into the file
<tns:mqmftCredentials
xmlns:tns=”http://wmqfte.ibm.com/MQMFTCredentials”
xmlns:xsi=”http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance”
xsi:schemaLocation=”http://wmqfte.ibm.com/MQMFTCredentials
MQMFTCredentials.xsd”>
<tns:qmgr
name=”AGENT2QM” user=”mftuser” mqUserId=”mftuser”
mqPassword=”admin@123″ />
<tns:qmgr
name=”AGENT1QM” user=”mftuser” mqUserId=”mftuser”
mqPassword=”admin@123″ />
</tns:mqmftCredentials>
In the above tag
name: name of the agent queue manager/coordination queue manager.
user: logged-in user name of the machine
mqUserId: mq userid
Step 8: Setup Coordination and Command queue managers on both the machines. AGENT2QM acts as coordination and command queue manager
• Run the following command to setup the coordination queue manager on the machine where AGENT2QM is running
• fteSetupCoordination -coordinationQMgr AGENT2QM -f
• runmqsc AGENT2QM < “%MQ_DATA_PATH%\mqft\config\AGENT2QM
\AGENT2QM.mqsc”
• fteSetupCommands -connectionQMgr AGENT2QM -f -p AGENT2QM
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -t queue -p mftuser -n SYSTEM.FTE +all
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -t topic -p mftuser -n SYSTEM.FTE +all
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.DEFAULT.MODEL.QUEUE +all
• Run the following command on the machine where AGENT1QM is
running
• fteSetupCoordination -coordinationQMgr AGENT2QM
-coordinationQMgrHost machine2.com -coordinationQMgrPort 1415
-coordinationQMgrChannel AGENT2.SVRCONN -f
• fteSetupCommands -connectionQMgr AGENT2QM -connectionQMgrHost
machine2.com -connectionQMgrPort 1415 -connectionQMgrChannel
AGENT2.SVRCONN -f -p AGENT2QM -f
Step 9: Create AGENT1 on the machine where AGENT1QM is running
• fteCreateAgent -agentName AGENT1 -agentQMgr AGENT1QM -f -p
AGENT2QM -mquserid mftuser -mqpassword admin@123
• runmqsc AGENT1QM < “%MQ_DATA_PATH%\mqft\config\AGENT2QM\agents
\AGENT1\AGENT1_create.mqsc”
• setmqaut -m AGENT1QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.FTE.REPLY.AGENT1 +all
• setmqaut -m AGENT1QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.FTE.EVENT.AGENT1 +all
• setmqaut -m AGENT1QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.FTE.STATE.AGENT1 +all
• setmqaut -m AGENT1QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.FTE.COMMAND.AGENT1 +all
• setmqaut -m AGENT1QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.FTE.DATA.AGENT1 +all
• REFRESH SECURITY()
• fteStartAgent AGENT1 -p AGENT2QM
Step 10: Create AGENT2 on the machine where AGENT2QM is running
• fteCreateAgent -agentName AGENT2 -agentQMgr AGENT2QM -f -p
AGENT2QM -mquserid mftuser -mqpassword admin@123
• runmqsc AGETN2QM < %MQ_DATA_PATH%\mqft\config\AGENT2QM\agents
\AGENT2\AGENT2_create.mqsc
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.FTE.REPLY.AGENT2 +all
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.FTE.EVENT.AGENT2 +all
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.FTE.STATE.AGENT2 +all
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.FTE.COMMAND.AGENT2 +all
• setmqaut -m AGENT2QM -t queue -p mftuser -n
SYSTEM.FTE.DATA.AGENT2 +all
• REFRESH SECURITY(
)
• fteStartAgent AGENT2 -p AGENT2QM
Step 11: Running listagents command on machine where AGENT2QM is running, should show both the agent’s in “READY” state
fteListAgents -p AGENT2QM
