Some minor changes have been made to the content of Endevor's pax.Z Electronic Delivery file requiring additional preparation steps than those documented in the Pax Enhanced Electronic Software Delivery (ESD) Guide and Endevor Technical document TEC491839: VIDEO: The ESD/PAX Process for endevor. This document details the additional edits required to perform a smooth SMP/E install from DASD.
When a product or Service Pack goes GA a master tape and install instructions from that tape are packaged together, in the past that tape was made into a tape image, ESD for electronic delivery, which when uploaded to the mainframe was transformed back into a physical 3480 cart using the CA90s ESD restore utility. IBM's pax.Z eliminates the need to recreate the physical tape and allows for all install pieces to live on dasd therefore requiring modifications to the delivered jobs from install from TAPE.
These modifications are documented in the @AREADME member of the INSTALL.NOTES file. Please verify you have made all the documented adjustments to each job prior to submit and you should be fine. Please note this document is not to be considered a replacement for the documented installation procedures in the Implementation guide, nor the Maintenance instructions documented in Chapter 9 of the Release Notes. Its purpose is to help you avoid the recent pitfalls encountered by other clients.

THIS IS THE POINT WHERE THE ADDITIONAL MODIFICATIONS ARE REQUIRED
There are 2 methods to getting the file names created by the UNZIPJCL member and those referenced/built by the SMP/e install job BC1JJB02 in sync:
