Question:
We got abend SE37-08 however we have EXTENDED SG as SPILL which was all free.
Answer:
The E37 abends could have been a result of needing fixes for that abend,
as well as the lack of PTFs needed for z/OS 2.2 compatibility.
The PTFs for these two problems that are in the file I setup for you are:
