Hoard will also not fetch files from non-replicated volumes. Objects in non-replicated volumes do not have version-vectors and a client cannot use rapid-cache validation on them when reconnecting to the servers.
When running hoard from the command line doesn't work. `hoard walk|list|verify' return ENOENT, the rest return EPIPE.
Then venus has been unable to figure out whether you are a local or a remote user (i.e. the primary user). You should start venus forcing your userid as the primary user. This can also be set in the venus.conf configuration file.
# venus -primaryuser < uid >
Then all hoard commands should work without any problem.
