The rpc2portmap program is not running, and therefore the updateclnt and
updatesrv programs fail to run. As a result the files in /vice/db are
not kept in sync.

I forgot what OS/distrib you are running, but on a Redhat linux do,

On all server machines,
 /etc/rc.d/init.d/update.init stop
 /etc/rc.d/init.d/update.init start
 ps auxwww | grep rpc2portmap

Then on the SCM,

And check if the files in /vice/db have similar timestamps on both
machines. If that is the case some sanity should have returned.
