First, in TSO, you can enter the command TSO HELP and you will see all of the commands that have help information available. Take this one step further and print or browse the entire contents of the 'SYS1.HELP' library.

Second, you can look here in the "z/OS V1R6.0 TSO/E Command Reference" manual:

What do you mean? Please explain further.

The answer would depend on what is being emulated.

Enter HELP once to determine what the problem is, and then you will be prompted to enter HELP again to see who has the dataset allocated.
