Introduction:
We do not have apar RO71200 applied. This was the apar which provided the DSOPTN enhancement command.
Question:

Is there an alternative method for determining what our CA Dispatch security option are currently set to? 

Environment:
z/OS
Answer:

To determine what security options you have in place, logon to Dispatch and do the following:

At the ENTER NEXT TASK CODE Prompt...
type: SHOWMAP CADSSEC {enter}

* The above will cause the following abend which loads the module in memory:
PREVIOUS TASK ABENDED WITH ABEND CODE D002 AND MESSAGE CODE 081009
DC081009 V1 T513 TASK:SHOWMAP PROG:RHDCSHOW; CADSSEC DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A MAP.

type: DCMT DIS MEM PROGRAM CADSSEC {enter}

Compare the resulting display which will look like this:

PROGRAM NAME: CADSSEC

 
 <ADDR>   <OFFSET>        <HEX>           <CHARACTER>   00243400  80000000  00E80000 00000000 00000000 00000000  *.Y..............
