  1. What are some of the projects I could use RSH-RDELTA for?

Here are just a few. The documentation manual contains examples of others.

Are you running RRSF to synchronize databases and need to continually verify that they are in sync? Just use RSH-RDELTA to compare the database unloads and identify differences between any two of your databases.

Are you consolidating data centers and need to merge two RACF databases? RSH-RDELTA will identify which components can be merged immediately and which have conflicts. Use RSH-RDELTA to research the conflicts and it will even highlight the case where a USERID on one database is a GROUP on the other.

Trying to get a handle on the volume of RACF changes and don't want to process all those SMF records? RSH-RDELTA can compare your current database unload with last week's or last month's and tell you, by resource class, how many profiles and access permissions have changed.

Adding dataset and resource profiles for a critical application rollout this weekend? Not sure if you got them all and you don't have time to filter LISTDSD and RLIST listings? Just unload your database and use RSH-RDELTA to compare it with an unload from before you started your updates. RSH-RDELTA can even limit its analysis to the Dataset High Level Qualifiers and Resource classes in which you are interested.  

Starting a project to synchronize RACF databases and trying to get a feel for the magnitude? Use RSH-RDELTA to compare the unloads for the databases and find out how much effort will be required. Then use RSH-RDELTA for research and to track your progress from week to week.

Need to archive the contents of a RACF database for research or recovery? Just unload your database and use RSH-RDELTA to compare the database with itself! You can get a listing of the contents of every field on every profile that interests you.

Want to download RACF information to your PC? RSH-RDELTA can provide its information in a format designed for this purpose.

Want to list a RACF profile as of last month? Simply compare last month's RACF database unload with itself and select the profiles you want. It's as simple as that.

  1. What system modifications are required to execute RSH-RDELTA?

None. RSH-RDELTA does not require APF authorization or any other operating system changes.

... return


  1. What will the demonstration provide?

Running in Demo Mode (i.e., without a license code), RSH-RDELTA will provide full functionality in terms of all of its selection and reporting options but will only compare and generate reports for user profile IBMUSER, group profile SYS1, dataset profiles with the High Level Qualifier of SYS1, and general resource profiles in the TSOAUTH class.

... return


  1. What operating system, sort products, and REXX Compiler has RSH-RDELTA been tested with?

RSH-RDELTA was originally designed and tested on z/OS 1.4.

RSH-RDELTA has been tested with IBM's DFSORT Release 14.0 and Syncsort's Syncsort for z/OS Release 1.1.

RSH-RDELTA was compiled using IBM's REXX/370 Compiler 3.0.

... return


  1. Do I have to have IBM's REXX compiler to run RSH-RDELTA?

No. If you have IBM's REXX compiler, you can run the IBM-compiled version of the program, which will run about 40% faster. If not, you can run the alternate compiled version which requires no additional software.
