if it's missing it should be recreated when the server registers with
the VLserver.

what does the FileLog tell you?

f912d849d3201b004ae7dbacf2d4848836fa986f was needed such that an
immediate failure would be retried, but
1) you should have it
2) that only applied if you restarted everything (including vlserver)
in a single server configuration, not just the fileserver.
