Issue/Introduction

Trying to move an element type JCL with the same name under the same system name but the type/subsys Is different. below is the following (ENCOPTBL,system definition, QE element display and output from move job)

The goal was to not allow the same element name with the same TYPE into same SYSTEM name.  

ENCOPTBL:

* THE SETTING OF REGISTER_ACROSS_SYSTEMS=(ON,X) HAS NO IMPACT ON THE   
* WAY DUPLICATE_PROCESSOR_OUTPUT_TYPE_CHECK WORKS. ONE CAN CONTINUE TO 
* DEFINE ELEMENTS WITH THE SAME NAME IN THE SAME SYS/SBS WITH IF THE   
* DUPLICATE_PROCESSOR_OUTPUT_TYPE_CHECK SETTINGS ALLOW THIS.           
*---------------------------------------------------------------------*
*        ENHOPT REGISTER_ACROSS_SYSTEMS=(ON,E)  DISALLOW ANY DUPLICATES
*        ENHOPT REGISTER_ACROSS_SYSTEMS=(ON,C)  ALLOW WITH C-LEVEL MSG 
*        ENHOPT REGISTER_ACROSS_SYSTEMS=(ON,W)  ALLOW WITH W-LEVEL MSG 
*        ENHOPT REGISTER_ACROSS_SYSTEMS=(OFF)   DEFAULT: USE SETTINGS  
*                                               ON SYSTEM DEFINITION   
***********************************************************************
* ELEMENT REGISTRATION CHECK FOR OUTPUT PROCESSOR TYPE ACROSS SYSTEMS  
*                                                                      
*   THIS OPTION WILL OVERRIDE THE DEFAULT LOGIC THAT CAUSES ELEMENT    
*   REGISTRATION CHECKS FOR OUTPUT PROCESSOR TYPE TO OCCUR ONLY        
*   WITHIN A SINGLE SYSTEM.                                            
*---------------------------------------------------------------------*
*   ENHOPT ELM_REG_CHK_OUTPTYPE_ACROSS_SYSTEMS=ON      DEFAULT IS OFF

Resolution

In the system definition panel the settings are currently:

ELEMENT REGISTRATION CHECK OPTIONS:
DUP ELEMENT NAME: Y (Y/N) MSG LVL: C (W/C/E)
DUP PROC O/P TYP: Y (Y/N) ACROSS SBS: Y (Y/N) MSG LVL: C (W/C/E)

To resolve the problem, change the C to an E to recieve an IMGR257E which will stop the action and not allow the duplicate element name.

Ensure that this is set at the system level all the way up the map.
