We are using AUTOINST terminals and we have large number of LUs. Until now we defined dependent LUs statically, now we want to define dependent LUs dynamically( with LUGROUP and LUSEED ). With auto installed terminals, CICS will get last 4-character of NETNAME for TERMNAME, and because we have large number of LUs it is possible to have multiple Terminal with same TERMINALNAME. Can CICS handle this type of same name Terminal? Do you have any idea to define terminal names with pool or something?

From the CICS Resource Definition Guide manual, 2.22.10:
The name specified becomes the name of the TCT entry, when this TERMINAL definition is installed. For this reason, the TERMINAL name should be unique (note that the value CERR is reserved for the identification generated for the error console). If you specify AUTINSTMODEL(ONLY), you need not worry about making the TERMINAL name unique, because it is not used as the name of a TCT entry. If you specify AUTINSTMODEL(YES), the TERMINAL name is used as the name of the TCT entry that is installed in the TCT when the TERMINAL definition is installed; the names of the TCT entries for the autoinstalled terminals are determined by the autoinstall user program.
so the answer to your question depends upon how your site is setting up CICS options.
