I want to merge two RACF databases but ran across a different CICS setup on the source. There, I saw eight character
transaction names like LCLSl200. On the main systems we use four character transactions.How does CICS call an eight character transactions? Is it some kind of exit or table? I do not want to define these on the main if I do not understand how it is called/verified.
I'm not a RACF expert. However, what I'm sure about is that CICS only uses four character transactions IDs. Might these entries be program names? I suggest you look at the CICS system and find out what these over long names mean.
