Maybe it should have; it's impossible to tell without knowing both what values 
you supplied to the RSTxxx command parms and what the reasons were that the 
objects did not restore. And depending on the reasons, we might also need to 
know a system value or two plus all related authorities.

A particular example could be that you specified ALWOBJDIF(*NONE) but the 
restore found significant differences for some objects. If so, then the objects 
were "correctly not restored"; hence, the job had no failure according to the 
parameters you set. (I'm not defending how it works, just trying to see if 
there's any logic.)

This would probably do what you expect for this particular case. But I wouldn't 
recommend it as a general technique. Too many other CL programs might be 
checking related diagnostic messages and expecting a SEV(30) to show up. This 
might be most true for install programs, both from IBM and from 3rd-party 

Perhaps better would be to create a new *msgf and duplicate CPF3773 into it 
with SEV(30). Then you could use OVRMSGF only in jobs that need it without 
affecting others. Perhaps.
