Workarounds and Mitigations

IBM MQ RDQM is only affected when configured in a high availability (HA) group.

In most cases the IBM MQ Appliance is not affected by this issue. The exception
is when you have a high availability configuration in which the two appliances are
not directly connected (that is, they are remotely situated and connected by means of
a switch or similar).
