Hi,

I have created the service to trigger the DLQ Handler using below

DEFINE SERVICE(S1) +
CONTROL(QMGR) +
SERVTYPE(SERVER) +
STARTCMD('C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere MQ\bin\runmqdlq.exe') +
STARTARG('SYSTEM.DEAD.LETTER.QUEUE TESTQMGR < C:\H\MQ\RuleFile.txt') +
STDOUT('C:\H\MQ\Log.txt') +
STDERR('C:\H\MQ\Err.txt')

but while starting the service, the below error is coming

"input in flex scanner failed"

Can anyone help in resolving the above issue

I'm not sure you can start the DLQ handler directly, and as such I use:

Code:
.
.
STARTCMD('[path]\mqdlqh.bat') +
STARTARG(DEAD.QUEUE +QMNAME+  <[path]\[rules file]) +
.
.


Where [path] and [rules file] should be substituted for your own.

The batch file simply contains 'runmqdlq.exe %1 %2 %3' (not in quotes, they're there to show the extent of the string), and all you need as a minimum in the rules file Control Data is the RETRYINT and WAIT extent.

When in doubt on windows, try
Quote:

STARTCMD('C:\Progra~1\IBM\WebSph~1\bin\runmqdlq.exe') +


(this assumes that "Program Files" is the first "Progra*" entry in the root directory listing and that "WebSphere MQ" is the first "WebSphe*" entry in that directory.)

Does the MQ service user have access to c:\H\MQ ?
And as you are on Windows you should really start the command with the word start to place it into the background...

Correct. That's cause windows uses 8(chars).3(chars) naming convention.
Tip: Since the errors folder is dug deep, use this convention to get to the folder from Run.

(perhaps pertinent)

More importantly, even more modern versions of Windows which correctly map the full names to the underlying 8.3 name choke when the full name contains spaces and is used in a command prompt environment. Sometimes doubles quotes help, sometimes not.

To clarify that rather rambling explaination:

C:\Program Files\IBM... will not work
"C:\Program Files\IBM..." may work
C:\PlaceThatWePutProgramFilesOnThisSite\IBM... will work

or Create a shortcut of the folder and move it to the windows (usually c:\windows) directory. Type the name of the folder in the run box...

(This really needs to be moved to genral faq)
