Could someone tell what is the equivalent command for "//DDNAME DD DSN=XXX.YYY.ZZZ, DISP=SHR" in OMVS.

So that DDNAME points to that DSN

OMVS does not use DDNAME in the way z/OS does, so your question is pretty much meaningless. Different languages support access to DD statements in different ways, so check the language reference manual for the language you are writing in for details. For such languages, typically the allocation is done outside of OMVS (via TSO ALLOC before invoking OMVS, for example).
