There are products like STOP-X37 that could be installed at your site that intercept and correct space abends. There also could be a site-developed process to do the same thing. Contact your site support group to know for sure.

Thanks for the feedback, we actually have DIF/SRS, but the cobal program DCB is using a NOTE/POINT and DIF/SRS will not do anytype of ADDVOL to this. I just found it very weird that you can get a IEC030I B37-04,IFG0554A in the job log, but the job gets a return code 0. One would think that the job would blow up.

has to do with the cobol program.
if you have declaratives or you are handling the file-status
and your code does not force an abend (return-code > 0),
then your job will continue to the next step.

unhandled errors normally result in abends.
improperly handled errors will result in faulty return-codes (=0).
