replication and reduncy

I'm trying to setup a system where I have two local servers with
replicated volumes.  One is the scm and the other non-scm.

When I stop the scm server I loose the connection to both servers.  
Nor can I start up a new venus, even if it only points to the replicated
server.  If I isolate the server filcon isolate -s <scm> the running
clients seem to work fine, but I still can not start up a new client.

I have not tried the opposit, where I stop the non-scm machine.

I guess I don't see how multiple servers and client are supposed to
interace.  I run venus-setup <non-scm>,<scm> 20000 to add both
servers.  BTW, I'm running the 5.3.9 release.

I'm also unsure of the format for /vice/db/VSGDB
The documentation on
just lists each volume and all the servers on one line.  The documentation
at looks like one
line per server, and one with all servers?

In the end I'm wanting to replicate to 3+ machines.  2 locally and 1
remote (different city), and have the client know about all local machines
for failover.  What is the best way to setup coda in this fassion.
