During the CA InterTest CICS 10.0 pax install, can you tell me what the DD SMPPTFIN is, and at what point would I have built it?

Environment

Release:
Component: INTERT

Resolution

SMPPTFIN is built in AVH4RECD. The description of all the jobs is found in AVHAREAD. It will contain the *.SMPMCS dataset. 

Additional Information

As a note for the client the RECEIVE job AVH4RECD couldn't find the datasets that were built.

It kept looking for *.CAI.SMPMCS, but it wasn't built with the CAI node, so to get around it the client renamed their datasets using CAI, and the RECEIVE worked.  The client wondered if the CAI may be hardcoded somewhere.

In AVHSEDIT there is:

/* SMPETEMP - Enter the prefix for SMPTLIB data sets. Warning - */

/* If you use .CAI as the last node of the SMPETEMP */ 

/* prefix, and DASDHLQ is set to a similar value */ 

/* without the .CAI node, problems can occur and the */ 

/* products may not install. */ 

/* Example: DASDHLQ = ABC.DEF */ 

/* SMPETEMP= ABC.DEF.CAI --- THIS WILL FAIL */ 

It looks to be in this member were the CAI node is defined.
