Run an IDCAMS LISTCAT against your VSAM MASTER CATALOG. You will see all your USER catalogs.

In my old mainframe days the standard DLBL name for the master catalog was "IJSYSCT", and its name was "VSAM.MASTER.CATALOG", but the latter might be different in your environment.

LISTCAT ALL CATALOG(VSAM.MASTER.CATALOG)
