Issue/Introduction

Is there any specific TSS command to check (figure out) what dataset is in use as the security file like RACF does with RVARY ?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

The closest thing in Top Secret to the RVARY command to show what dataset is in use as the Security File is:

TSS MODIFY STATUS(BASE)

and look for ‘Id=’. This will show the identifier specified when the security file was allocated. (Normally, ID=PRIMARY is specified when the primary security file is allocated and ID=BACKUP is specified for the backup security file.)

You can also look at the proc that starts Top Secret (or the Top Secret started task output) and the files specified in the DD statements:

//SECFILE DD
//VSAMFILE DD

These are the BDAM and VSAM security files in use.
