ACF commands and subcommands
acf2src
ACF2
lets authorized users create and maintain major components such as the logonid and Infostorage databases using the ACF command and subcommands from the TSO ready prompt. You can also use ISPF panels, console operator commands, and batch processing to perform the same functions. This list provides an overview of the ways you can issue the ACF commands and subcommands.
  • ACF Command
    Provides subcommands, using the ACF command setting, to process
    ACF2
    records and access rules. This command setting determines what type of
    ACF2
    record you can process. For example, the LID command setting lets you insert logonid records and access rules.
    ACF acf SET LID lid INSERT USER01 DEPT(ACCT) ACCOUNT CICS TSO lid
    In this example, logonid USER01 was inserted and defined with ACCOUNT privileges, access to the CICS environment, and can execute commands from TSO.
  • ACF Subcommands
    Processes types of
    ACF2
    records or rule sets. The ACF command setting that you select determines what ACF subcommands you can execute. After you enter the ACF command and establish the appropriate ACF command setting, you can issue the various ACF subcommands. For example, the SET CONTROL subcommand lets you modify global system option records.
    ACF acf SET CONTROL(GSO) control CHANGE SECVOLS VOLMASK(-) control
    In this example, the GSO SECVOLS record VOLMASK field value was set to volume-level protection, protecting DASD and tape volumes.
  • ISPF Panels
    Lets you execute ACF commands from TSO using a menu-driven interface. Use option 6 COMMAND to enter TSO ACF commands from an ISPF command shell. Or you can select option A to use the
    ACF2
    interactive panels.

  • ACF BATCH Command
    Execute the ACF command in batch by using the ACFBATCH utility. The ACFBATCH utility lets you execute the standard
    ACF2
    commands in batch. For example, you can use ACFBATCH to perform multiple ACF subcommands.
    //ACFJOB1 EXEC PGM=ACFBATCH //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=A //SYSHELP DD DSN=SYS1.HELP,DISP=SHR //SYSIN DD *
    CHANGE UID(ABC*****) JOB NOTAPE-BLP SET TERSE LIST IF(JOB) SET VERBOSE LIST IF(SECURITY) SHOW STATE HELP FIELDS
    /*
    In this example, the highlighted ACF subcommands are executed from the ACFJOB1 ACFBATCH job.
  • Console Operator Commands
    Issue a subset of
    ACF2
    console operator commands while under the ACF command.
    ACF2
    provides operator commands for controlling and monitoring its operation. For example, to start and stop the cache synchronization process:
    F ACF2,CACHESYN(START|STOP)
