256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry
When you start Microsoft Windows on a computer where Microsoft Message Queue (MSMQ) and the MSMQ - MQSeries Bridge are installed, the MSMQ - MQSeries Bridge may not start properly. The following error message is posted to the Application event log:
It is important to note that the last line in the log:
may also occur as follows:
The MSMQ service notifies the Service Control Manager that it is online, even though it is not ready to take Message Queue Information Service requests. This behavior is by design in order to allow any dependent services to start without having to wait for the MSMQ service to complete its full initialization. This is only a problem if a service that depends on the MSMQ needs to issue a Message Queue Information Service request immediately.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for SNA Server 4.0. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
215838 How to Obtain the Latest SNA Server Version 4.0 Service Pack
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
This problem was first corrected in SNA Server 4.0 Service Pack 4.
With this fix installed, the MSMQ - MQSeries Bridge retries Message Queue Information Service operations when an operation fails with one of the following error messages:
The default retry interval is one second, and three retries are attempted. This interval can be changed by adding a new DWORD value named MQISRetryDelay to the following registry key:
Set the value to the number of milliseconds that you want the server to wait between retries.
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
