TCP/IP connection to Data Sharing Group

TCP/IP connection to Data Sharing Group
We have installed our first Data sharing group on a Sysplex with two
LPARS. The location name is DB0A. I have one member running on each LPAR,
DB1A and DB1B I am trying to use TCP/IP to connect to the group from a
differant Sysplex. The first member comes up with the following.
-DB1A DDF START COMPLETE
LOCATION DB0A
LU MOSS.LUDB1A
GENERICLU -NONE
DOMAIN db0a.sdcplex1.state.mo.us
TCPPORT 1224
RESPORT 1225

The second member comes up with this:
-DB2A DDF START COMPLETE
LOCATION DB0A
LU MOSS.LUDB2A
GENERICLU -NONE
DOMAIN db0a.sdcplex1.state.mo.us
TCPPORT 1224
RESPORT 1227

I have asked IBM about the same Domain Name being used on both LPARs and
they said that is the way it works in Data Sharing and cannot be changed.
My Network people tell me we can't have the same Domain name on each of the
LPAR's because you can only assign one Domain Name to an IP Address.

Right now I am getting to the DB2 regions by using the IP address for each
member, but I need to use the DN to use workload balancing.

Has anyone ran into this? If so, what are the options to resolve this.
TIA.
