Issue/Introduction

When doing a dcmt display dict, I am not seeing the dictionaries defined to my CV.

Environment

Release : 18.5

Component : CA IDMS

Resolution

The display will contain entries for dictionary names which have been accessed while the system is up. It actually looks through allocated PDE's to find which dictionaries have been accessed. If you bring a system up and issue the command you might see 

CDMSLIB DEFAULT DEFAULT 

If you then dcuf set dictname appldict, go into IDD and dis a module, the above display would have 

CDMSLIB APPLDICT DEFAULT

This display is more about what has been accessed in the cv, versus what is defined to the cv.

Since dictionaries are nothing more that DBNAMES, that is the way you should display them. DCMT DISPLAY DBN Will show all DBNAMEs defined to that system. To identify the dictionaries, eyeball the list to determine which dbnames have the appropriate segments. We don't have a separate list based on dictionary. There are DICTNAME fields in subschema control, and lterm, but nothing on the system wide level. A DICTIONARY is really just a DBNAME that we expect to have certain areas defined to it.
