The SHOW DDSN in CA ACF2 lists all of ACF2 database data sets. 

What is the equivalent CA Top Secret command to list all of the CA Top Secret database datasets?

Currently CA Top Secret does not have an equivalent of the ACF2 SHOW DDSN command. To find the CA Top Secret datasets, look at the following DD statements in the startup proc that starts CA Top Secret. If the DD statement is not there, that file is not in use.
