hi,

Is it possible to send message via mainframes from one RACF ID to other?
If so what is the ISPF command for it?

thx,
Arun.

Hello,

By RACF ID do you mean the user-id used to log on?

Are you familiar with the "SEND" command in TSO? It allows you to send a text message to a TSO user - here's an example:
SEND ?SOME TEST? USER(theuserid) LOGON
The LOGON at the end says to send the message "now" if the specified user is logged on otherwise show the message when the userid does log on.

If this is NOT what you are looking for, please provide more detail.

Hi,

There is one more way to send msg. in Mainframes(Through Racf).
in command line give TSO MSG and you can send as meny no. of msgs as you want by giving Receiver's Racf ID.

Hello,

I believe what you just asked for was already posted in this thread. . .

This is the same "send" Praveen referred to. If you invoke "send" from =6 you will have more room to type than if you use TSO SEND. . . from a command line.

Hello,

No to worry.

TSO MSG is not a standard command as far as i know (neither MSG nor MESSAGE are on the mainframe i'm currently connected to).

It might be an add-on at Praveen's site.

If SEND won't do what you need, just let us know and someone will help.

Hello,

If i recall correctly, you can send the same message to multiple users using
Code:
SEND ?SOME TEXT? USER(uid1, uid2, uidn) LOGON


Also, if you include an asterisk '*' for the uid, the message will be sent to you. If you don't specify a user, i believe the text will be sent to the system operator console - not acceptable at many sites.

Give the multiple id SEND a try and let me know if it works for you.

Keep in mind that from the command screen (=6) you can type SEND. From other command lines, you'll need to key TSO SEND. The =6 screen also has more room to type.
