I'm not sure what the problem is.

 - give the new server an unique server-id in /vice/db/servers
 - add a volume storage group (VSG) entry to /vice/db/VSGDB
   something like, E0000101 oldserver newserver

 - restart all servers so that they see the new server-id and VSGDB data.

 - create your replicated volume 
   root_at_scm# createvol_rep replicated_vol E0000101

 - mount the replicated volume
    admin_at_client$ cfs mkm /coda/[my-realm]/repvol replicated_vol
