Re: RPC2 bind error

It looks like you are accidentally running two copies of the update
server, and perhaps of the fileserver too. 

Why don't you do:

killall -9 codasrv rpc2portmap updatesrv updateclnt auth2

and then:

cd /etc/rc.d/init.d
update.init stop
auth2 stop
codasrv stop

update.init start
auth2 start
codasrv start

Then first check in /vice/srv/SrvLog that the server was started and then
try the volume creation again. 

I'm attaching our "Howto" which we are just finishing up this week.
