    This issue occurs if a user or group can't be resolved in their original location/dn. Isn't a /FORCE option or similar possible to develop, to enforce remove an AUTHREC entry by an MQ administrator?

    This is something we would like to implement in a future version of MQ - but it is not just a matter of igoring the "id no longer exists" error.

    Any updates should be exposed to both the MQSC "SET AUTHREC" interface and the "setmqaut" interface.

    Note IBM opened APAR IT14316 to address this then later canceled the APAR. I hope this RFE can be implemented. I understand the need to check if the user or group exists when adding OAM authority, but when issuing '-remove' the check should not be in place.
