The only i can say is that i had the same problem yesterday when
tested it on Tru64 5.1, the VolserLog shows the following:

bash# cat /usr/afs/logs/VolserLog
Wed Feb 21 16:56:45 2001 Starting AFS Volserver 2.0 (/usr/afs/bin/volserver)
Wed Feb 21 16:56:48 2001 VCreateVolume: partition /vicepa is not in service.
Wed Feb 21 16:56:48 2001 1 Volser: CreateVolume: Unable to create the volume; aborted, error code 103
Wed Feb 21 16:56:48 2001 : Value too large to be stored in data type.

The tested version was: Openafs-2001-02-15

It didn't happend me on Digital UNIX 4.0d, but i dont remember if i
tested the same version.

I will look on it as soon as possible.

bash# cat /usr/afs/logs/VolserLog
