As long as the CATALOGs are shared for what you are trying to manage, yes. 
BTDT, 20+ years ago.

Thanks to both of you, Skip, and Carmen for the confirmation of taking a copy 
of a SCDS and matching ACDS from a sysplex environment and making it work in a 
single system monoplex. It has been 20+ years since I did everyday storage 
management for a living.

No, not exactly.
First, I meant "regular" sysplex. In that case it is possible and recommended 
to have SMSplex=sysplex.
However it is also possible to have multiple SMSplexes within a sysplex, and 
within GDPS.

And I mean SMSplex can be cross-plex - yes, it is possible. Multiple 
non-sysplexed systems can share SMS.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
