Ok, that's simply because volutil normally only runs on servers. The file is the shared secret that the server uses. The latest
release (6.0.5) has a little update that allows anyone who has a token
that identifies them as a user in the System:Administrator group to use
volutil without having the /vice/db/ secret.

But it is probably easier run the command on the server.

Ok, so the client gets the rootvolume name (codaroot), then does the
equivalent of getvolinfo codaroot, and finally tries to connect to I hope that that address is the same as what is using.

But if it is I'm not sure why this isn't working. At least we know that
the name resolution seems to be working, the ROOTVOLUME file is correct
and getvolinfo actually returns valid looking data.

Maybe it is getting to be the time to try to figure things out with

    tcpdump -n -p -w codatraffic.dump port codasrv

And then try to access /coda/...
