first of all, you do not mention what is "vserver", I assume that you mean

"Linux VServer Project
Linux VServer is a means of running arbitrary linux distributions inside a running linux system."

Not being familiar with vserver I do not know how much isolation
between different "servers" it provides.

It looks like you are trying to run several Venus processes on the same host.
Though possible in theory, it is not currently supported nor really meaningful.

If you need to access Coda from several chroot-ed environments,
your best bet might be to bind-mount Coda in the corresponding places,
still running exactly one cache manager Venus process.
