BPXF140E 00000081 0594003D when running CICS PA SMPE APPLY job CPAAPPLY

Question & Answer


Question

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.

Answer

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:

 '/usr/lpp/cicspa/v530/IBM/'

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.

 CHANGE PATH('/usr/lpp/cicspa/v530/','/usr/lpp/cicspa/v530/IBM/')

Here is a link to Example 5: Changing the PATH value of DDDEF entries in the SMP/E documentation for the ZONEEDIT command.
