Allow more than one entries in CONNAME for connect of remote qmgr in MQ Explorer

We are using MQ Exlorer for administration various qmgrs on different platforms.

We use pairs of MQ Appliance M2002B and therefore have HA qmgrs, but not yet with floating IP.

When configuring these qmgrs to the Explorer we have to add them twice (for each Appliance instance) because the Explorer does not allow multiple connectections as in CONNAME for channels .

We would like this feature to be added to the MQ Explorer.

    Please cancel this idea !

    Rich Harran gave me the tip to treat these appliance HA qmgrs like "Connecting directly to a multi-instance queue manager" and this worked great.

    My apologies for not to see the wood for the trees :-)
