Issue:

Using CSM, PTF SO05907 applied with an error as the USS directory was not available - it had not been mounted.

 Attempt at restoring SO05907 results in
GIM69168E ** HFSCOPY PROCESSING TO THE CC2DHFS LIBRARY FAILED FOR C2DNMI IN SYSMOD SO05907. THE RETURN CODE (12) EXCEEDED THE ALLOWABLE VALUE. DATE 18.309 - TIME 11:14:13 - SEQUENCE NUMBER 000003.

NOTE: This error can occur for any fix attempting to update a USS file.

Cause:
Directory not mounted
Resolution:
In this instance, the USS SMP/E directory was mounted on system DEV1, but CSM was running on DEV2, so the directory was not available either for the APPLY or RESTORE.

Mounting the directory on DEV2 allowed the restore to work properly.
