one afs hardware server doesnt come up.

I have got a second working fileserver and want to mount the partition
from the crashed fileserver to the working fileserver.

crashed fileserver has a /vicepa (from external SAN)

working fileserver has a /vicepa (from external SAN)

So my idea is to mount the vicepa (from external SAN) from the crashed
file server to the working fileserver as /vicepb so i could get the
volumes and register the volumes to the working afs fileserver.

"vos move" wont work because second fileserver is off.

Is there a suggestion for another way ?
