Issue/Introduction



When running a SMPE Receive of DB2 Tools PTF's the following messages are repeated in the output, what is the cause?

GIM20311E ** THERE IS A SYNTAX ERROR IN THE CONTROL STATEMENT AT COLUMN 03. 
GIM56704E ** THERE IS AN ERROR IN AN UNKNOWN MCS IN SMPHOLD. 


JCL had the following DD's:
//SMPPTFIN DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DB2SMPE.CA.SYSVPTF.BUCKET 
//SMPHOLD  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DB2SMPE.CA.SYSVPTF.BUCKET 

Environment

Release:
Component: INS

Resolution

The SMPHOLD DD should point to the dataset created from downloading the Error Holddata, not the PTF file.  The hilvl.SAMPJCL contains jobs that need to run prior to receiving PTF's:

  DBM1HOLD:  Downloads the Error Holddata
  DBM7RCH: Receives the Error Holddata


After running the above jobs and correcting the SMPHOLD dataset, the RECEIVE of the PTF's will succeed.
