I wonder which test triggered this error.

However, the actual volume creation looks like it went fine.

The fact that /vice/srv/SrvLog remains empty puzzles me to no end. It is
always written to, often there is actually too much data. Is there some
different path for the server logs specified in /etc/coda/server.conf?

The volumes must exist and at least the attributes for the root object
have been found, so the RVM state is fine.

The ETIMEOUT can only be a result of a failed directory data fetch,
maybe /vicepa isn't accessible to the servers. Strange, they normally
run as root processes. This could also be the reason that SrvLog isn't
written too.
