/afs/andrew.cmu.edu/usr/shadow/volid.pl (from Warren Yenson) will compute 
the path to the volume data; It could be extended such that when given a 
vnode number it would print the whole path but no one has done so yet.

If the client hasn't talked to them yet they won't be in its server list 
to notice they're down.
