As a number of users are now upgrading to MQ Advanced for z/OS VUE, I often get asked how a queue manager is configured to report itself as Advanced VUE in SMF89 (product utilisation) records.
The steps to configure an installation to report itself as MQ Advanced for z/OS VUE are documented in the Knowledge Center here.
If migrating to V9.0.0, PTF PI79673 is required. However, we recommend users migrate to either the latest V9.0 continuous delivery release (V9.0.5) or the recently announced long term support release (V9.1). In either case, the configuration option is part of the base product.
Advanced VUE can then be flagged using zPARMs, or via the START QMGR command.
