Question:
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,                                        
// PATH='/usr/lpp/java/J8.0_64/'                                    
//SMPCSI   DD DISP=SHR,DSN=SYSI.CSF.V151.CSI                        
//SMPNTS   DD PATHDISP=KEEP,                                        
//         PATH='/SYSP/AEGON/u/istsucc/csf/DCCF1B0'                 
//SMPCNTL  DD *                                       
             
 SET BOUNDARY ( GLOBAL) .                                                                                                   
 RECEIVE SYSMODS FROMNTS(DCCF1B0)                                                                         
  SELECT (                                                                                                
   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.   
Environment:
z/OS
Answer:
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..
