Hi !

Check all the SYS1.* Lib's. Perhaps you'll find something like:
SYS1.MVSC.SYNCSORT.ZOS....

But please do what murmohk1 told you.

So you could get the best informations for understanding your
installed environment.

Regards, UmeySan

gnanas,

Please check if you have access to SYS1.SYNCLINK library. You will find ICEMAN,ICETOOL etc if installed.

It is site-specific.

You can do one thing. Just give SYS1.** in 3.4 and get the entire list of the libraries. Then search for the member using "m sort" or "m iceman" etc.

This way you should be able to find the exact library where the SORT utlilities are placed.

I could find out the sort utilities using above. The dataset is like
SYS1.DFSORT.SORTLPA.

Ok Aaru, I can do that. Here I've a small doubt... Once I wanted to do the same type of search (for something else) but in production. Question is, How practical is this to search the libraries starting with some system HLQ in prodcution, it might list many such libraries which I'm not supposed to access as an applicaion engineer..how to distinguish them now? Just by putting "B" or "SB" in front of them. Bit irritating for me not to now..what I can access & what I can not ? Do you have some solution for this?

Anuj,
ICETOOL can be found out in SYS1.SORTLPA.
For a search like this, you can probably first locate it on your test system and then try to see in the library with the same name on production. Hope they follow the same convention in test and prod atleast for system datasets like these.

I think it's a bit strong suggestion, I found many libraries such as SYS1.DFSORT.LINKLIB, SYS1.SORTLIB, SYS1.PROCSORT.LINKLIB..some of them may be alias lib. which contain ICETOOL load module, further library suggested by you is not available at my site.

Problem is this, in Test region also I can not just 'browse' any system library, it violates the security rules here.
