2)  On the Control File Maintenance panel,  do an Inquiry on Activity:
-------------------  Control File Maintenance - Entry Panel  -------  CA-PanAPT

3) On the Control File Activity List display, scroll down to the Activity -  MOVEREQ -APM-level  ,  and check the setting of the OWNER field:

|    Last-Action                                                          
V    |       Activity        Administrator  <--- Activity Allowed By ---->
