ZOS Navigationg to ISPF Main Menu

Hello,

I'm trying to access the ISPF Primary Menu on a mainframe system.  When I log in I'm presented with a user logon and I enter my userid and password.  That takes me to a menu where I can select TSO.  

On other systems, this normally takes me to the ISPF Primary Menu.  On this system it takes me to a RACF main menu panel.  

I can't seem to figure out how to get to the ISPF Primary Menu from here.  Is there something I'm doing wrong or could it be something with the userid?  

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What happens if you type in =X and press enter?

It possible that your user-id is a recycle user-id from an RACF admin who wanted that panel to be their initial panel.

I would talk to your current RACF admin and/or whomever admin's TSO at your site.

Hi Gilt,

Thanks again for your help.  =X takes me to a panel that has 4 options.  It wants to know what to do with a log data set.  Not sure what it is but if I hit option4 (save the dataset as new) it takes me to a READY prompt and I can get to ISPF from there.  

I'm running into a new issue.  I feel like I'm walking uphill with boulders chained to my ankles! :D

I'll open a new question since this has been answered.  

Care to meet me at the new question?  

Thanks!!!

O.K

However. you need to look for a file that is named something like:

      userid.LOGON.CLIST

Then look for a member called INITCLST.  This is probably setup to take you to the RACF panel.  I have no clue why, but that would be something to ask somebody else there.

If you can't find userid.LOGON.CLSIT let me know and I give you a couple other ways to find out what file it may be on your system.

I'll go over to your other question.
