Maybe is this something for a FAQ but I couldn't figure it out.

On a server there was a try for creating a volume. In the
VLDB tere is no entry but on the server there is in the /vicepa
directory a file called V0537477428.vol

The volume is in no way accessable and it is not salvable
(tried straight bos salvage -server x -part a -volume number -showlog)

Starting salvage.
bos: salvage completed
@(#) OpenAFS 1.2.11 built  2004-01-11
03/09/2007 12:53:14 STARTING AFS SALVAGER 2.4 (/usr/afs/bin/salvager
/vicepa 537477428)
03/09/2007 12:53:14 No applicable vice inodes on vicepa; not salvaged
Temporary file /vicepa/salvage.inodes.vicepa.7394 is missing...

well. that's fun.

is there a chance of destruction by just tossing the Volume-file
with rm V0537477428.vol?
