First Configuration of Websphere MQ File Transfer Edition:
Step 1: Create a Coordination Queue Manager in Websphere MQ Explorer, in my case my coordination Queue Manager is called FTE_COORD
Step 2: Create the Command Queue Manager
Step 3: Start Websphere MQ FTE Installation
Complete all the information for the FTE_COORD Manager in the installation window:
Complete all the information for the FTE_COMMAND Manager in the installation window:
Step 4: After installation you will receive the following message:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IBM\WMQFTE\config\FTE_COORD\FTE_COORD.mqsc has been created.
Ensure this file has been run against the coordination queue manager FTE_COORD before attempting file transfers.This can be done by redirecting the contents of the file FTE_COORD.mqsc into a runmqsc session.
Navigate to the path above in the command window and enter the following command:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IBM\WMQFTE\config\FTE_COORD>runmqsc FTE_COORD < FTE_COORD.mqsc
The mqsc script will create the FTE System Queues, Topics, namelists,
DEFINE TOPIC(‘SYSTEM.FTE’) TOPICSTR(‘SYSTEM.FTE’) REPLACEALTER TOPIC(‘SYSTEM.FTE’) NPMSGDLV(ALLAVAIL) PMSGDLV(ALLAVAIL)DEFINE QLOCAL(SYSTEM.FTE) LIKE(SYSTEM.BROKER.DEFAULT.STREAM) REPLACEALTER QLOCAL(SYSTEM.FTE) DESCR(‘Stream for WMQFTE Pub/Sub interface’)* Altering namelist: SYSTEM.QPUBSUB.QUEUE.NAMELIST* Value prior to alteration:DISPLAY NAMELIST(SYSTEM.QPUBSUB.QUEUE.NAMELIST)ALTER NAMELIST(SYSTEM.QPUBSUB.QUEUE.NAMELIST) + NAMES(SYSTEM.BROKER.DEFAULT.STREAM+ ,SYSTEM.BROKER.ADMIN.STREAM,SYSTEM.FTE)* Altering PSMODE.

Step 5: Verify that the following system Queues has been created:
Step 6: Connect MQFTE Coordination Queue Manager by right clicking FTE_COORD and selecting ‘Connect’
Step 7: A successful connect will look like the following:
You are now ready to create your first Agent to send files from a source to destination.
