From a z/OS system that I have entered via telnet, I issue the SCM -v CLI command and this is returned (garbage followed by what looks like the version information):

So, I'm guessing that I have a setup problem, or there is a bug in the z/OS SCM CLI.

Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong?

Hi Frank,

The garbage in the beginning is almost certainly UTF-8 output.  I think the first step towards figuring out what's going on is deciphering it.  Try redirecting the stdout and stderr to files:
scm -v > stdout.txt 2> stderr.txt

Take a look at the resulting files to see which one has the garbage in it, and try converting it to EBCDIC to see if you get anything intelligible:
iconv -f UTF-8 -t IBM-1047 stdout.txt
iconv -f UTF-8 -t IBM-1047 stderr.txt

All the garbage is in stderr. stdout was clean and contained:

You were quite correct. stderr was in the wrong code page. Here it is after translation:

You will probably find more information on the permission problem you are having in the system log.... may give you a point in the right direction for solving this.

I checked and found that the directory getting the permissions error is indeed inaccessible:
ls -al /u/JAZZ/ccm/eclipse/configuration
total 64
drwxrwxrwx   4 ISPFDMN  SYSSTC      8192 Aug  8 11:53 .
drwxrwxrwx   3 ISPFDMN  SYSSTC      8192 Aug  8 11:10 ..
drwxrwxrwx   6 ISPFDMN  SYSSTC      8192 Aug 22 18:08 daemonconfig
drwx------   6 BPXOINIT SYSSTC      8192 Aug  8 11:58 scmtools

What permissions should this directory have? Should it be like temp? 777+Sticky bit?

On z/OS, the location of that directory is calculated based on the value of your SCM_WORK variable. While modifying the permissions of the existing directory so that your user has access is one option, it might be simpler to configure things so that your user's SCM_WORK variable points to another directory -- perhaps one under your HOME like SCM_WORK=/u/frank/scmwork -- so you'll be sure to avoid potential conflicts with other users of the CLI.
