Question & Answer
When I run the CPAAPPLY job to install CICS Performance Analyzer for z/OS (CICS PA) V5.2, why is the SMP/E APPLY failing with this BPXF140E message?
BPXF140E RETURN CODE 00000081, REASON CODE 0594003D. A LINK FAILED FOR LINK NAME /usr/lpp/cicspa/../sysout2pdf/examples
The previous CPAIHFS0, CPAIHFS1, CPAISMKD, and CPADDDEF jobs all ran successfully and completed with RC=0.
The Unix System Services Return Code 00000081 (decimal 129) errno means there is no such file or directory:
129 0081 ENOENT No such file, directory, or IPC member exists
Unix System Services Reason Code 0594003D which is documented as 003D JRDirNotFound A directory in the path name was not found.
The CPAAPPLY joblog shows...
DDNAME DDDEFNAM SMPDDNAM TYPE --------------DATA SET OR PATH-- SCPAHFS SCPAHFS PATH '/usr/lpp/cicspa/v530/'
The error is occurring because the trailing "/IBM/" is missing on the DDDEF.
The DDDEF PATH needs the trailing "/IBM/" and should be:
You should be able to use the SMP/E ZONEEDIT command to change the PATH on the DDDEF to add the trailing "/IBM/" so the CPAAPPLY job will run successfully.
Here is a link to Example 5: Changing the PATH value of DDDEF entries in the SMP/E documentation for the ZONEEDIT command.
