This intermediate course is designed for technical professionals who require the skills to administer any of the IBM MQ queue managers except IBM MQ for z/OS or IBM MQ for iSeries.

Note: This course is also available using Linux for labs, see WM209G.



Delegates should:

  • Have basic knowledge of WebSphere MQ concepts and facilities, which may be obtained through practical experience or by successfully completing the Technical Introduction to IBM WebSphere MQ (WM101G) course.
  • Be reasonably familiar with and able to invoke standard functions within the operating system environment used in the lab exercises.

Some knowledge of SNA LU6.2, TCP/IP, or NetBIOS configuration is also helpful.



4 days.



This 4-day instructor-led course provides technical professionals with the skills needed to administer IBM WebSphere MQ queue managers except for IBM WebSphere MQ for z/OS. For WebSphere MQ for iSeries, see the remarks under Audience.

In this course, students learn how to install, customize, operate, and administer IBM WebSphere MQ on distributed platforms. Topics covered in this course include configuration, day-to-day administration, problem recovery, and managing security and performance.

In addition to the instructor-led lectures, students also participate in hands-on lab exercises that are designed to reinforce lecture content. The lab exercises utilize IBM WebSphere MQ, giving students practical experience with tasks such as handling queue recovery, implementing security, and problem determination.
