-6 is ENXIO, which is a different error compared to your earlier post.
This error is returned when the volume is not found by the server.

So your server is reporting that it either cannot find the replicated
volume 7f000000, or it's underlying replica. I can't tell which without
server logs. In any case try to rebuild the VRDB and VLDB files as

    scm# volutil makevrdb /vice/db/VRList
