glimmer-cism error in building compset BG1850CN in CESM

I am trying to perform a simulation with CESM 1.2 on Cheyenne using compset BG1850CN. Upon trying to build the case using CESM, I get the error below. It seems that the /models/glc/cism/glimmer-cism/ directory is missing in this version of the code.

Does anyone know why this is and if there is any way to use this compset with CESM 1.2?


CMake Error: The source directory "/gpfs/fs1/p/cesm/releases/cesm1_2_2_1/models/glc/cism/glimmer-cism" does not exist.

Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.
