Coda File System

replicated volume that is not on the SCM

I have three machines.  Is it possible to have the 2nd and 3rd machine
share a volume that is not on the SCM?

I would like to have a central SCM machines that shares it's contents to a
bunch of remote machines, but I want a pair of remote machines to have
local content that is not pushed back up to the SCM.  Is this possible, or
does the SCM always have to be part of a volume?

BTW, this currently looks like:
root_at_sysops1:~# ls -l /coda/
total 5
lrw-r--r--    1 joshl    nogroup         7 Nov 10 13:25 local -> #local
lrw-r--r--    1 joshl    nogroup        11 Nov 10 13:26 local-stu ->
drw-r--r--    3 root     nogroup      2048 Nov  9 10:57 office
drwxrwxrwx    2 root     nogroup      2048 Nov  8 16:28 staff

Also it looks like the max servers a volume can be on is 8:
codaroot 7f000000 3 1000001 2000001 3000001 0 0 0 0 0 E000010

Is that a max, or just placeholders.

I'm sure reintegration gets harder with more servers, but we may want more
than 8 machines as we deploy into more and more offices...
