all depends on the dasd setup of the two systems
I infer that by regions You intend different LPARS or zOS instances

if the relevant dasd and catalogs are shared You can use BPXWDYN to obtain the real name of a GDG generation from whatever zOS instance You are logged on

in IT terminology is important the right term is GENERATION, not VERSION
When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
