That is to create a volume. There seems to be a problem with setting up the
partition (i.e. /vicepa, /vicepb). What does the /vice/db/vicetab file contain?
It should have an entry like:

pccb2 /vicepa ftreedb width=xx,height=yy

And the /vicepa partition (or directory) should exist and initially have an
empty file named FTREEDB in it so that the servers knows it may use that
