Not an uncommon issue.

Many IFS operations default to the user's current directory. If a user has
a home directory, then that is used as their starting current directory. If
the home directory doesn't exist, then the default current directory is /

So in the job that failed, the operations involved where using relative
path names, which worked fine from / (root) when the user didn't have a
home directory. Now that he does, they are trying to use /home/xxxx and

Yesterday, I added a home directory for user xxx to resolve a SFTP
Could not create directory '/home/xxx/.ssh'.

Today, a different non SFTP job run under same user xxx had CPYTOIMPF
For unknown reasons, /home/xxx was automatically prefixed to the dest path.

Why would the existence of /home/xxx change the default path of a job run
by xxx.

Thank You
