This customer's CA Datacom CICS Services Version 15.1 PAX was unzipped into their USS directory /SYSP/AEGON/u/istsucc/csf/DCCF1B0.
The SAMPJCL member to SMP/e RECEIVE job DCC20RCB was edited to specify that PATH location:
//RCVBD EXEC PGM=GIMSMP,PARM='DATE=U',REGION=0M
//SMPJHOME DD PATHDISP=KEEP,
//SMPCSI DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYSI.CSF.V151.CSI
//SMPNTS DD PATHDISP=KEEP,
//SMPCNTL DD *
SET BOUNDARY ( GLOBAL) .
RECEIVE SYSMODS FROMNTS(DCCF1B0)
CAB1F10 /*CA-Datacom CICS Services */
CAB1F15 /*CA-Datacom CICS Services */
Why did the above resulted in the following SMP/e error:
GIM45800S ** PACKAGE DCCF1B0 WAS NOT FOUND IN THE SMPNTS.
When using the FROMNTS keyword in the SMP/E RECEIVE it is expected that a subdirectory with the name specified in the FROMNTS keyword exists in this path and contains the input to SMP/e.
Since the SMP/e RECEIVE specified the subdirectory in FROMNTS, the PATH must NOT include that subdirectory name.
The SMP/e PATH should have been specified as /SYSP/AEGON/u/istsucc/csf/ removing the subdirectory DCCF1B0..
