First a few obvious things:
1. 1.4.6 is kinda old, 1.6.2 is recent. Though 1.4.6 should still work fi=
2. Only one RW copy of a users home volume? No RO copy as a lazy man back=
3. Bos salvage should be run from time to time (once every 6 month
against the partitions), thats at least my experience.

Now for some specific:

 idec failed. inode 2308463244341149695 errno 22
Do not know that error code. Looks like some of
 iinc, idec - increment or decrement an inode's link count
And a very big number of inode. To much files on that partition?
To many inodes?

(a bos salvage server partition would maybe have cleaned up a few unused

Salvaged user.92602 (537480981): 0 files, 0 blocks

A empty volume?
The second one:

No applicable vice inodes on vicepb; not salvaged
Temporary file /vicepb/salvage.inodes.vicepb.30835 is missing...

Looks like it does not find any data of that volume on that partition?
