Issue/Introduction

How do you translate the following RACF GTF trace commands to Top Secret?

To activate the RACF GTF Trace:                                          

 - start GTF with a dataset and the parms:                               

    TRACE=USRP                                                           

    USR=(F44)                                                            

    END                                                                  

 - issue console command:                                                

    @SET TRACE( JOBNAME(IPVSRV)

                RACROUTE(TYPE(1,2,5,6,9))

                CALLABLE(TYPE(38))

               ) LIST                                        

                                                                         

To Deactivate it:                                                        

 - issue console command:                                                

    @SET TRACE( NOJOBNAME NORACROUTE NOCALLABLE )  LIST                  

 - stop GTF, collect the trace dataset.                                  

                                                                         

NOTE:  the '@' represents the subsystem cmd prefix you assigned to RACF  

       via the INITPARM value of your IEFSSNxx data.  

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

The GTF IBM trace does not need to be translated.  The commands are console commands and can be run regardless of which security product is used.  Many applications have their own traces.  For example CICS has console command traces for different problems within CICS.
