When retrieving the required ZAPs from the Broadcom support portal the format of the fix appears to wrap around and does not look like the standard format (with all statements starting in the same column)

Component : CA Disk Backup and Restore

Resolution

The file is in the correct format. The CA Disk Backup and Restore ZAPs are now packaged using the GIMDTS FORMAT.

https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSLTBW_2.2.0/com.ibm.zos.v2r2.gim2000/gimdts.htm

The normal  SMP/E RECEIVE and APPLY jobs will be able to produce these correctly
