It looks like the update client/server are not working properly. Check
if the updateclnt on the second server is running and that /vice/db/scm
is the correct name of the first (SCM) server.

If that seems to be ok, could you try to create the following link on
the scm and restart the updateclnt on the second server?

$ ln -s . /vice/db/db

The /vice/db directory on the second server should get populated with
files like VLDB, VRDB, prot_index.db, and prot_users.db.
