How to check installed WebSphere MQ is client or server ?

In a big organisation there will be many server where MQ installed and in many application servers will have MQ client installed . As part yearly IBM Enterprise license renewals Admins are required to gather the information . Should be able to confirm whether the installed software is MQ client or MQ server .

IBM MQ will be installed on multiple platforms . ex AIX, Wintel, Linux, Solaris, HP-Nonstop etc

In the below we will see on each of the platform how we will segregate the software type based on the installed software .

Linux

Run below command and verify the output .if the output has MQSeriesServer then the installed software is IBM WebSphere MQ Server where we can create QMGR’s and run .

if there is not MQSeriesServer then if you have MQSeriesClient then the software is IBM MQ Client . Used by Application for connecting to remote QMGR .

Note Only IBM MQ Server is required to entitle with IBM License . Client is not required for Licensing .

Command : rpm -qa | grep -i MQ

AIX

Run below command and verify the output .if the output has mqm.server.rte then the installed software is IBM WebSphere MQ Server where we can create QMGR’s and run .

if there is not mqm.server.rte then if you have mqm.client.rte then the software is IBM MQ Client . Used by Application for connecting to remote QMGR .

Note Only IBM MQ Server is required to entitle with IBM License . Client is not required for Licensing .

Command : lslpp -l |grep -i mqm

Solaris

Run below command and verify the output .if the output has server then the installed software is IBM WebSphere MQ Server where we can create QMGR’s and run .

if there is not server then if you have sol_client then the software is IBM MQ Client . Used by Application for connecting to remote QMGR .

Note Only IBM MQ Server is required to entitle with IBM License . Client is not required for Licensing .

Command :

pkginfo |grep -w mqm

take package name from the above command output and run below command

pagparam <pakagename> CLASSES

pkgparam mqm CLASSES

Sample output:
none base java javasdk keyman man runtime samples server sol_client txclient

To get only the MQ client fileset:

pkgparam mqm CLASSES

Note: The output is the same as above. If the following value is present, then the client is installed: 
     sol_client

Sample output:
none base java javasdk keyman man runtime samples server sol_client txclient

Windows

Windows 7

+ If you want to know whether you have installed the client or the server version of WebSphere MQ in Windows, you can do the following:
1) From a command prompt, enter: regedt32

2) Expand the following:  
For MQ 7.0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\IBM\MQSeries

For MQ 7.1 and 7.5:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\IBM\WebSphere MQ\Installation

For MQ 8.0
Note that HKLM is an abbreviation for: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
On 64-bit MQ installations (Server and Client):
The registry contains 64 and 32 bit MQ entries
The master copy is at HKLM\Software\IBM\WebSphere MQ
However for interoperation with 32-bit MQs, this is cloned to HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\IBM\WebSphere MQ
Primary installation information is still cloned to HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\IBM\MQSeries


.
You can use the following command to get the registry keys for MQ (in a single line):
reg export “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\IBM\WebSphere MQ” c:\mq-8.txt

3) If you have installed multiple versions of MQ, then you will need to go to the next level.

For example: MQ 7.1 in Windows 7, installed in Installation1:
reg QUERY “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\IBM\WebSphere MQ\Installation\Installation1\Components”
Local Clients\Windows NT Client REG_SZ Installed
JavaMsg REG_SZ Installed
Development Toolkit REG_SZ Installed
XA_Client REG_SZ Installed
XA_Dotnet REG_SZ Installed
XA_Java REG_SZ Installed
XR_Clients REG_SZ Installed
XR_Service REG_SZ Installed
Server REG_SZ Installed
Explorer REG_SZ Installed

Windows XP

+ If you want to know whether you have installed the client or the server version of WebSphere MQ in Windows, you can do the following:
1) From a command prompt, enter: regedt32

2) Expand the following:  
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> IBM -> MQSeries

3) Click on the folder ‚ÄėCurrentVersion‚Äô

4) Look at the Name ‚ÄėProductType‚Äô listed in the right pane. It should state either Client or Server under the ‚ÄėData‚Äô field.

+ If you want to determine the exact components installed you may look in the following registry path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> IBM -> MQSeries -> CurrentVersion -> Components

If the MQ Client is installed, then the value of the registry sub key,  
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IBM\MQSeries\CurrentVersion\Components 
with name “Local Clients\Windows NT Client”¬†
is set to value “Installed”.¬†¬†

Similarly, if MQ Server is installed, then the sub key  
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IBM\MQSeries\CurrentVersion\Components 
with name “Server” is set to value “Installed”.  

+ If Windows XP is installed use the “reg.exe” registry tool that comes with the OS installation with the ‘QUERY’ parameter to check the components that are installed.

For example: run the following command from the command prompt in order to check the installed MQ components: 

reg QUERY HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IBM\MQSeries\CurrentVersion\Components  

Sample output:

! REG.EXE VERSION 3.0

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IBM\MQSeries\CurrentVersion\Components
    JavaMsg     REG_SZ  Installed
    Server      REG_SZ  Installed
    Development Toolkit REG_SZ  Installed
    Explorer    REG_SZ  Installed
    Local Clients\Windows NT Client     REG_SZ  Installed

HP-UX

  MQSERIES.MQM-CL-HPUX-U805233          6.0.1.1        WebSphere MQ Update for HP-UX

To get only the MQ client fileset:

/usr/sbin/swlist -R MQSERIES | grep MQSERIES.MQM-CL-HPUX

Sample output:
