OVRMSGF will not work in bash because the bash buildin command cl will internally execute QCMDEXC in a default activation group. Because of the default activation group the scope of the override will be changed to call level. Therefore the override is automatically removed after QCMDEXC (OVRMSGF) ends.
To fix this we must call a CL-program from bash which includes the above commands.
This workaround is not very nice. So we need some extension in IBM i. For example:
A new parameter in CL command CHGPF to ignore the message CPA32B2 (like option *IGNINQMSG in CL command DLTJRNRCV)
An environment variable to ignore that message (should be easier to deliver in a current IBM i release via PTF)
A new parameter OVRSCOPE (*JOB) in CL command OVRMSGF (like in all other OVR-commands), so that we can call the above commands directly from bash cl buildin
