This is RedHat Linux 7 system.

I installed coda client 5.3.11 and connected to testserver okay

I then installed the server components, vice-setup according to the 
directions.. Then brought up auth2.init, update.init and codasrv.init

I then re-ran venus-setup and venus -init &

Previously I had *had* an older version of the coda client installed. I un-
installed it (RPM) before installing the 5.3.11 client.

I suspect its a server problem, since the client will talk to the testserver.

I can't see how I removed any permissions, since I only followed the 
install steps.

I can't see anything in /coda anyway, even as root..

The "No Inodes" message looked strange to me.
