DFSORT and ICETOOL are component of the same product, DFSORT. If you want to know which sort product is installed, DFSORT or SYNCSORT or CA-SORT, then look in the SYSOUT output. It should show which product and which version you are running.

As Superk said, ICETOOL is a feature included with DFSORT. If you have DFSORT, you have ICETOOL.

To determine which sort product you're using:

Run a JCL-SORT job and look at the messages in //SYSOUT. If you see ICExxxs messages (e.g. ICE000I), you're using DFSORT. If you see WERxxxs messages, you're using Syncsort. If you see CASxxxs messages, you're using CA-SORT.
