Hi,

Need another silly help. Can anyone please tell me the PDS where ISRSUPC utility might be located. I found that the SORT resides in SYS1.SICELINK while looking for ISRSUPC icon_smile.gif (I am assuming that most of the system utilities are stored in one of the SYS1.* PDS).

In our shop we have more than 4000 SYS1.* PDS and my id does not have access to most of them. So if I try to access a PDS without authentication, I am thrown out of my TSO session icon_sad.gif. I already did it couple of times today and might very well be receiving a security violation mail anytime now icon_lol.gif.

Thank You.

1. ISRSUPC is a TSO/ISPF utility, not a system utility.
2. Many of what you consider "system" utilities will NOT be located in SYS1.* data sets as different products have different high level qualifiers.
3. As an ISPF function, ISRSUPC would typically be located in ISP.SISPLPA (although the specific name will vary by site -- some sites put the version number in the data set name, some do not).

Hello,

Just curious, how will knowing the dataset location be useful?

This and most other IBM utilities are in the link list and are found wherever they are at execution time.

If you "do" anything that needs to know (in a process), it will fail if new libraries are used for the "next" release/version.

Ohh. Should have read the post twice before posting. I meant ISRSUPC, the ISPF utility. Sorry for that.

I was trying to use ISRSUPC in a cobol program (just out of my curiosity trying to check how and if ISPF utilities can be called from COBOL) and my cobol compilation job abended as it could not find ISRSUPC in any of the linklibs I had given.

Thank You Robert and Dick. I found it.
