Question:

Is there another DATASET variable that contains the real dataset name if last INFO DSN command was issued for an alias dataset other than issuing 'ATTACH DSN' for the alias dataset and query the D.ADSN variable?

Answer:

No other variables exist. You are required to issue 'ATTACH DSN' for the alias and then query the D.ADSN variable.
