How can you find out the Remote Loader version on a RACF mainframe system?  Can the engine startup show this?  Or can the Versioning information on the driver show this?


I don't believe the remote loaders ever show version information when they start up.  As far as the engine goes, they don't really even know they are using remote loader versus local mode, they just invoke the Java class they are told to invoke.  The only way to really tell the version of the remote loader is to look at the file sizes and timestamps of the JAR files on the system.
