when I try to mount a volume (the first after the root volume) from a client I get the following message:

[root_at_redhat80 coda]# cfs mkmount /coda/everywhere everywhere
coda_pioctl: Venus returns: -17 for (0xff000001.0x1.0x1)
/coda: File exists

My setup:

scm server
non scm server


/vice/db/servers:              1              2

created volumes with:
createvol_rep rootvol E0000100 /vicepa
createvol_rep everywhere E0000101 /vicepa

The rootvolume is mounted by default, I suppose.
I get two directories in /coda: and

When I mount the second volume with `cfs mkmount /coda/everywhere everywhere` I should get a directory "everywhere", but is it located in /coda or in /coda/ (or also /coda/
However, I don't get it because the mounting fails (as mentioned in the beginning).

And does it make a difference if the client is connected to or

Thank you for advice! Have a good weekend.

Cheers :)
