	That reference is perfect, thank you.  I had simulated most of those
steps already, but was missing a few key things.  I haven't tested yet,
but I'm hopeful that this clinches it.

	OK, I'll play with this.  I wiped out my old replica so I will have to
rebuild it before I can experiment some more.  Any idea if I use
`volutil info <volname>.n` or `volutil -h <server> <volname>`?  I expect
I'll figure it out soon enough one way or the other. 

	Thanks for the help.  I spent half of yesterday searching the mail
archives and didn't stumble on that message from Jan.
