Update DirMaint's EXTENT CONTROL file as follows.

  1. Make sure the AUTOBLOCK section contains the following entries:
         3380  800 540 1 CKD
         3380  512 690 1 CKD
         3380 1024 465 1 CKD
         3380 2048 270 1 CKD
         3380 4096 150 1 CKD
  2. Make sure the DEFAULTS section contains the following entry:
         3380 885
    (or any number larger than 2+the number of DGTSRVnn ids).
  3. Make sure the REGIONS section does *not* contain an entry for volume $$$$$$, or if present that the device type is 3380.
Then issue a <DIRM> RLDEXTN command.
