PowerShell CMDLets for WebSphere MQ - administer queues on Windows or Linux

Dino Chiesa is writing about PowerShell CMDLets for WebSphere.

“It seems IBM have been busy doing CmdLets for MQ, and somehow this escaped my attention. Starting back in December 2007, Dale Lane at IBM published a series of posts about the topic of PowerShell CmdLets for MQ.  There is also now an official SupportPac for this stuff, it goes by the catchy name of mo74. (direct FTP link here).    In IBM-speak, a SupportPac is an add-on to the IBM product (in this case WMQ).  Very good to see!  Keep in mind that there are different categories of SupportPac  and just because it says "support" in the name does not mean it is a "supported" part of the IBM product in the sense that you can call up their support engineers and ask for bugfix on it.  mo74 is listed as Category 2, which means it is AS-IS software.  SupportPacs can transition from "AS-IS" to a supported part of the product; this happens when customers demand it.  Last updated April 16th, mo74 is currently at version 1.6.”

Maybe handy for people looking for way to monitor WebSphere MQ with OpsMgr 2007.
