The 1st error indicates that data set does not exist, in this case TCPIP.SEZATCP:

GIM54701E ** ALLOCATION FAILED FOR SMP00001 - IKJ56228I DATA SET TCPIP.SEZATCP

Run a batch SMP/e report of the DDDEFS:
 
//SMPLIST  EXEC PGM=GIMSMP,REGION=4096K
//SMPCSI DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.CSI    
...                  
//SMPCNTL  DD *                 
SET BDY(GLOBAL).       
LIST DDDEF ALLZONES.   
         
/*                           
                     

Check that the DDDEFs defined to the CSI point to existing valid data sets.
