• Tailor your local FTP job using the 'Alternate FTP' information and run to download the zip package to your local USS environment, usually named scart0.zip
Note: 'Preferred FTP' does not provide a zip file, only individual files which CAUNZIP cannot use
• Tailor and run your local CAUNZIP job to breakout the zip package and create SMPPTFIN within your local USS environment
• Run local SMP
CAUNZIP is easy to use because it automates separating files (PTFs and informational PTFs) and preparating for SMP/e processing.
