You can now add read-only replicas for your volumes by using the "vos addsi=
command. However, it is not recommended to do this for volumes which should=
be writeable most of the times (because afs always prefers the read-only=20
volume over the read-write one). As for the home volumes, I would "vos move=
some of them to the other server, so that a failure of one server doesn't=20
affect all users.
