Coda File System

Update: Coda access rights problem

I've experimented a little bit more. When I run 'ctokens', the kernel on
the client displays an error message:
 coda_pioctl: Venus returns: -107 for (5659df88.ff000001.00000001.00000001)

Also, I cannot change the password for codaadm using cpasswd:
	cpasswd -h myrealm codaadm
	Changing password for codaadm
	Your password:
	New password for codaadm:
	Retype new password:
	bind failed; user unauthenticated

While changing my own password works fine:
	cpasswd -h myrealm jmartin
	Changing password for jmartin
	Old password:
	New password for jmartin:
	Retype new password:
	Password changed, it will be in effect in about 1 hour

Again, clog codaadm works fine with the password I'm using.

Any ideas?
