Driving CESM with Fixed SST file "error"

Hello CESM Users,

I am attempting to drive CAM with an SST file.
I modified the user_nl_docn file with:
streams = '/scratch/snx3000/jbuzan/modified_inputdata/Merz_files/Merz/ctrl_LGM_SST_0.9x1.25_m_251-285_final.nc'

Then execute ./cesm_setup
I cd into the Buildconf/ and cat docn.input_data_list:

domain1 = /scratch/snx3000/jbuzan/inputdata/ocn/docn7/domain.ocn.1x1.111007.nc
file1 = /scratch/snx3000/jbuzan/inputdata/atm/cam/sst/sst_HadOIBl_bc_1x1_clim_pi_c101029.nc
domainfile = /scratch/snx3000/jbuzan/inputdata/share/domains/domain.ocn.gx1v6.090206.nc

The SST file was not replaced with my ctrl_LGM_SST_0.9x1.25_m_251-285_final.nc SST file. I try to replace 'streams' with 'file1' and the ./cesm_setup does not recognize the variable name.
I am not sure what command I am supposed to use.

Thanks for your help!
