The problem is that directory update operations on the old volume fail
as both servers at the same time complain about
"no space in the volume log".
Why at all would they use the volume log while fully connected?

I am repeatedly checking with "cfs cs", as I usually do during big
updates, and the connection is always strong (10 Mbit LAN).

I know but I "assumed" that that was a misleading symptom, caused
by some other problem - because I get that on two servers at once,
in fully connected state.

Thanks, worth a try. I'll see if it helps.

Thanks Jan!
