I think you're mixing up volumes and partitions here. It doesn't matter
whether you have a single /vicepX or 12 of them. I was talking about the
volumes (as created with createvol_rep).

btw. if you are copying in an existing tree of data, give rvmsizer a
try. It should be in either /usr/bin or /usr/sbin on the server and
works like a df, but gives an estimate on how much RVM would be needed
and whether there are any directories that might give you a problem.
