Perhaps your server died. The first client would have things cached, so it
wouldn't really notice. 

Try restarting the server: kill it, then do

/etc/rc.d/init.d/codasrv.init stop
/etc/rc.d/init.d/codasrv.init start
/etc/rc.d/init.d/auth2.init stop
/etc/rc.d/init.d/auth2.init sart
/etc/rc.d/init.d/update.init stop
/etc/rc.d/init.d/update.init start

Try doing cfs checkservers from the client that is working to see if the
server is up.
