We have several tso sessions that can be opened (Extra X-treme), but all are set up to use the same profile dsn (userid.ispf.profile), so can not login to more than one at time. I created 2 proile dsns (userid.tso1.ispf.profile and userid.tso2.ispf.profile) and copied old profile to new dsns. Where and how do I change which profile dsn the tso session is going to use?

Most systems are different. You will need to investigate on your system.

When you logon, you specify the name of your logon proc. The logon proc will typically execute a system setup exec, which in turn may execute your private setup.

This is another of those cases where you MUST contact your site support group, as they know how your site is set up and we don't. Depending upon how the site TSO log on process works, what you are attempting to do may -- or may not -- even be possible. Only someone working at your site can tell you for sure.

I agree with Robert, unless you are someone in a role who should be controlling this, just don't toch it.

If you're an Application Developer, an end-user, suggest you please talk to your site support group instead of experimenting your own. I ran in to an idiotic trap during my initial years with zOS doing something of this nature. icon_sad.gif

Hello,

I'm probably missing something here, but why do you need 2 logins in the same tso?

You can SPLIT to more than 2 screens if you want more than 2 opened at one time. I usually have several open concurrently.

You can change your profile dataset manually by exiting ISPF and issuing the ALLOC command:
Code:
ALLOC F(ISPPROF) DSN(my.profile) REUSE

THNX for the replies. I only need the 2nd session sign-on when I use couple of home-grown utilities from within which I can not use split or swap screen commands, thus making my life miserable, if I need info from other session. I just want to login to the 2nd session only when I have to open those utilities...I will try the ALLOC command, before that I will ask my systems guy to see if I can even do that. THNX...

Hello,

It might be worth determining why these locally written utilities do not allow split screens . . . icon_question.gif

qmf is a utility that does not allow swaping.
a couple other ibm ispf accessable utilities are also in this category
but i can't remember them because i do not use them.
instead of qmf, i always use spufi.

i a not sure why qmf does not allow split screen,
i will google now and try to determine the reason.

The last time I looked at it, it was not using ISPF services. I believe it uses GDDM to display its information.

Rather than split screen, I have two different userids:
1. edit the panel
2. test the panel

I prefer two so I can see things side by side. For example, on the second userid, I often run a panel trace. I want to look at the trace file while also editing at the panel.

Pedro,

within the last year or two,
i believe you have brought this point up before.

At least one of us can remember that.

You probably already know this, but you can use the "ISPF" command from within QMF to shell out to a normal ISPF session where you can split your screens etc. I know it's not the same as having QMF on one side of a split screen, but it is tolerable.
