Coda File System

dumping volumes

I am trying to work on multilevel backup for coda.  I have been trying to
play with regular full dumps to see how they work so far, but I've been
having trouble.

I have two volumes, coda.root and u.edaniel, with id's 2a000001 and
2a000002 respectively.  I can get volutil to do info and lookup on both
volumes successfully, but when I try to dump:

[root_at_triffid dumps]# volutil dump 2a000002 u.edaniel.dump
V_BindToServer: binding to host
VolDump failed with Unknown RPC2 return code 200

The same thing happens with my other volume.  For what it's worth, if I
try to call volutil dump with a non-existant volume ID, it returns with a
different (but still "Unknown") RPC2 return code.

I am running coda 4.4.0 on a 2.0.30 kernel.  Any suggestions?

The other seemingly important thing that I have not yet figured out is the
format of the dump file.  Assuming that I can get dump to work, I
could probably reverse-engineer it, but it would be nicer to have someone
tell me...

Thanks for your help.
