The REALLOCDUR command reallocates cylinders for a specified durable cylinder type. Durable cylinders are special cylinders used by the file system itself, such as cylinders used to store the master index (MI) and the file system trace buffer (FTR). Durable cylinders are not available to be allocated for general storage.
Use REALLOCDUR when durable cylinders have been lost, or cannot otherwise be repaired. This command allocates new durable cylinders for these structures. If cylinders which used to be part of the durable cylinder remain on the bad or quarantine lists, they should be freed by using the BADLIST /R or QUARLIST /R command, as appropriate. For more information on these commands, see BADLIST, and QUARLIST.

Specifies that durable cylinders for the trace buffers be reallocated.
