That looks good.

And the server on clusty2 recognized the vicepa partition. So something
else must be going wrong here.

Those failing greps are a good indication that the following command

    volutil -h "$SERVER" getvolumelist "/tmp/vollist.$$" 2>/dev/null

I guess we won't see the errors since stderr is redirected to /dev/null.
So I wonder if there is an error message when we run the following on

    volutil -h getvolumelist

This should dump the list of volumes (and partitions) to stdout and if
it doesn't it should give some error message. My guess is that there may
a slight difference for /vice/db/ on both machines and so the
volutil on clusty1 fails to authenticate with the server on clusty2.
