Hi Anthony,

What you see happens when for one reason or another the volume location
and/or volume replication database on the server is not updated correctly.

You need to go back to the server(s) where you made the volume.  On the
server hosting the volume check /vice/vol/VolumeList and see if mikevol.0 is
in there.  Then check the SCM and see if mikevol.0 is in there.

Then check the /vice/vol/VRList for mikevol.  If you can't find it, or you
can find it only in the VolumeList then you should issue a
volutil -h "server.holding.volume" purge volname volid

If it is there, then it is time to stop and restart the update daemons on
all machines.  Another thing that can't do any harm is to rebuild the binary
databases on the SCM (update moves these to other servers)

volutil makevrdb /vice/vol/VRList
volutil makevldb /vice/vol/BigVolumeList

Then check SrvLog on the SCM for errors.
