That is a reintegration conflict. The client had (disconnected) changes
for that file and when it tried to send them to the server there was
some problem. I guess removing the volume on the server qualifies as a
'problem'. If you can still access the volume in the client cache you
could use

    cfs purgeml /path/to/removed/volume/

to make sure that all local modifications are discarded from the venus

If the volume is not accessible or visible, you might have to
reinitialize the cache on the client, restarting it as 'venus -init' or
creating an empty file named INIT in the venus cache directory and then
restarting. (touch /usr/coda/venus.cache/INIT)
