Coda File System

Problems setting the server

Hi everyone,

I finally got my environment setup to experiment with Coda. That's a
long time I am watching what is going on and I am expecting the time I
will have money and time to give it a try, a serious one...

I tried to setup the server running the vice-setup script, everything
went fine until I reached the RVM data file. My disks system is LVM2
managed. I created separated volumes for /vice, /vicepa, rvmlog and
rvmdata. All of them are logical volumes and /vice and /vicepa are
journalled filesystems (IBM JFS for Linux). The rvmlog is 75M and
rvmdata 1G. I have 1G RAM in this system and around 80G disks.

Here is the message I am getting while the script is trying to setup

LOG file has been initialized!

Rdsinit will initialize data and log.
This takes a while.
rvm_initialize succeeded.
Going to initialize data file to zero, could take awhile.
?  Couldn't write to /dev/rootvg/rvmdata.
Your coda server is not completely setup.  You will need
set it up by hand or fix the problems and rerun /usr/sbin/vice-setup.

What is going on?
