You probably have not yet reintegrated any changes made during a

Yup, as long as there is a modification log waiting to be reintegrated,
the volume will stay write-disconnected. Check if you have tokens,
without proper authentication the client cannot reintegrate.

Ehhh, _what_ did you do? I'm not sure what you did, but it sure sounds
like you managed to trash the server. This is from the volutil manpage,

I really hope you didn't try to use 'volutil salvage'.

       The salvage option to volutil doesn't work right.   Please
       don't try it.

Last time I tried it, it wiped the container files from underneath the
volumes. The directory structure is still there, but any file-contents
is gone, lost forever.
