Hi BALAJI,

Yes you can give the same step name in a job.

The job will run fine.

If you have to reference the stepname (for overrides as an example) the system selects the first step with that name that it finds.

That my or may not give you the results you're hoping for.

You can run a job with more step with the same name but most part of scheduler does not allow it.
