Hello Jan,

thanks for your response.

Well, I made sure that
'vicepb' partition is setup (using /usr/local/sbin/vice-setup-srvdir)

I restartet the server and now I found in
/vice/srv/SrvLog thet the codaserver is not running:

Date: Fri 01/26/2007

09:36:39 Coda Vice, version 6.9.0       log started at Fri Jan 26 
09:36:39 2007

09:36:39 RvmType is Rvm
09:36:39 Main process doing a LWP_Init()
09:36:39 Main thread just did a RVM_SET_THREAD_DATA

09:36:39 Setting Rvm Truncate threshhold to 5.

log_recover failed.
do_rvm_options failed
09:36:39 rvm_init failed RVM_EIO

What does this mean?
well codaserver was running after first setup, i.e. where only partition 
was defined.

Best regards, Reiner
