If Your shop is licensed to use them, are not you available with the documentation? Try to get in touch with some "senior" at your shop about them.

RACF is usually a stand alone product, with only things like Vanguard reporting as an add on (only 1 I've ever heard of).

Maybe it would be easier if you explained what you want to do with RACF

Sorry, but I can not understand your concept of tools in RACF.

As stated above, RACF is a pretty much stand alone facilty that can be used from the panels or from batch.

But unless you can actually tell us specifically what you want to know then no one can be of any help. Maybe if you tell us what your new assigment is, then that may give us some clues.

unless You specify better what You are looking for, You will get little replies

RACF does not need any tools,
You can carry on all the RACF administrative work by using the RACF provided utilities

The op/ts probably means:
Hey, got a new assignment where they expect me to know something about RACF.
can anybody help me prepare for my new job?


my suggestion, read the redbooks about RACF
The URL will provide you with 83 results in Redbooks, Redpapers, Drafts and Technotes.
