IMHO this is not the best way to move coda to the new server. I would 
better dump volumes into backup files and later restore them on new site 
(cfs clone ..., cfs dump ..., cfs restore ...). As cfs restore creates 
readonly volume then you will need to mount this volume and copy the 
files from it to new read-write volume. If your old host still working I 
would suggest you try this way.
As rvm's version changed too between coda 6.0.5 and 6.0.14 it is not 
garanteed that RVM-data file remains compatible with coda 6.0.14. BTW 
did you upgrade all the libs coda depends on (rvm, lwp, rpc2)?
Good luck!
