That message is displayed when there already is a pid file for auth2 in
/var/lock/auth2. Did you have a previous Coda installation? Or maybe the
lockfile didn't get cleaned up correctly when auth2 was shut down. Run
"/etc/rc.d/init.d/auth2 stop" to make sure auth2 as well as the lockfile
are gone.

Hmm, haven't used linuxconf. Does it really use 'ps' to see what is
running, or does it simply try to look at which lockfiles are present
(or which services 'should get' loaded in /etc/init.d/rc3.d)

To check whether the processes are really running.

    ps auxwww | grep '\(auth2\|rpc2portmap\|updateclnt\|updatesrv\)'

SCM servers should have all of these, non-SCM servers only need auth2
and updateclnt.
