... This is still valid ... it looks like your Coda server is not

createvol_rep needs to connect to the server to get a current copy of
the 'volume replication database' (VRDB). It uses this to check if
you've already created a volume with the same name.  

As it can't talk to the server, it can't check if the volume already
exists, and it clearly can't create a volume either, because we need to
be able to talk to the server to create one.
