In some configurations, particularly when using MQ clusters, Queue Managers may need a DNS-type service to function.
This is the case, for example, when a partial repository is located outside a private network, and has no access to the corporate DNS service. The easy and practical solution in this case is to use the /etc/hosts file, and enter the correspondence between the hostnames to be reached and their IP addresses.
IBM's MQ on Cloud offering has a number of limitations (not always well detailed) that can generally be overcome.
One such limitation is the lack of access to the /etc/hosts file, as MQ on Cloud is container-based. It is possible to activate a DNS service on MQ Cloud, but the corresponding pricing disqualifies the MQonCloud offer.
This limitation prevents the integration of a Partial Repository located on MQ on Cloud with an MQ cluster located on a private network.
To solve this problem, IBM needs to provide MQ on Cloud with a function providing the same services as the /etc/hosts file.
