Cannot get Coda server working

I've been trying to get Coda working on Redhat 8.0 for hours, to no 

Everything builds and installs correctly. I'm using the 2.4.18 kernel 

vice-setup runs without any problems, and everything APPEARS to start 

The problem is when I try to create my root volume.

[root]# createvol_rep rootvol E0000100 /vicepa
V_BindToServer: binding to host synchron
RPC2_NewBinding to server synchron failed with RPC2_NOBINDING (F)
Failed to dump the current VRDB into /vice/db/

I can see that codasrv, auth2, rpc2portmap, updatesrv and updateclnt 
are all running.

My /etc/services has all of the right entries in it.

I can see listeners on codasrv and rpc2portmap in netstat.

I've tried compiling the source and installing the RPM's, and I always 
get the same behavior.

All of the client utilities show the same behavior.

Turning debug on on auth2, rpc2portmap, and codasrv show stuff 
happening when it's starting up, then just tickcounts. Nothing shows in 
the logs or debug when I try to create the volume.

/vice/srv/SrvLog shows the server has started.

Any ideas?
