If you use replicated volumes, the clients will always talk to all
servers in the replicated group. The only exception are file data
fetches, in which case we use the server that has been the fastest in
answering previous requests. If that server dies, the client
automatically fetches the rest of the file from the other available

Changing ip-addresses will at the moment only help to confuse the
codasrv daemon.
