Description:

One of the steps involved with the new Electronic Software Download (ESD) process, involving the pax.Z file, is to run the UNZIPJCL job. This job executes IBM utility GIMUNZIP. Successful execution of this job requires SMP/E v3.3 which was part of z/OS 1.6. This requirement is due to the usage of the archid parameter as shown in the following example...

 //SYSIN    DD  *
   <GIMUNZIP>
   <ARCHDEF archid="Common - Special Instructions for ESD"
   newname="yourHLQ.CCSESD.INSTALL.NOTES"
   volume="*"
   replace="YES"   >
   </ARCHDEF>

Attempting to run the UNZIPJCL job on a system running an older version of SMP/E will result in the following messages...

----------<GIMUNZIP>
----------<ARCHDEF archid="Common - Special Instructions for ESD"
GIM20313S ** THERE IS A SYNTAX ERROR IN THE CONTROL STATEMENT FROM DD STATEMENT SYSIN AT COLUMN 10.
----------         newname="SYS4.CAI.CCSESD.INSTALL.NOTES"
----------         volume="PK3040"
----------         replace="YES"
----------> </ARCHDEF>
----------<ARCHDEF archid="Common - Documentation" 

Solution:

Run the UNZIPJCL job on a system running z/OS 1.6 or higher, which will include the minimum version of SMP/E that supports the archid parameter.
