You need to obtain a token so that Coda can check your identity.

$ clog <adminusername>
password: <adminpassword>

This is the first volume that will be mounted by a client as the root of
the Coda tree, it shows up on all clients under /coda.

RVM is used to store the metadata. The file data typically goes into
files on /vicepa, however directories and attribute information is
stored in RVM.
