This volume has an id of "32". Volume ids are usually larger than
536870912; do you know how this volume was created?

The volume doesn't exist on that server, although it has an entry in the
vldb. If the volume does exist somewhere, you may be able to correct the
vldb by running 'vos syncserv' and 'vos syncvldb'. If it does not appear
to exist anywhere, you can remove the vldb entry with 'vos delentry',
and then create a new volume with that name.
