I have a problem with openafs and loop device...I can't create a partition
with a loop device:

root@rs1:/home/bbyte/openafs-1.2.2# vos create rs1 /vicepa root.afs -cell
rs1 -noauth -verbose -maxquota 30000
vos : partition /vicepa does not exist on the server

root@rs1:/home/bbyte/openafs-1.2.2# mount
/dev/sda2 on / type ext2 (rw)
/dev/sda6 on /var type ext2 (rw)
/dev/sda7 on /home type ext2 (rw)
/dev/sda3 on /usr/local type ext2 (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
/dev/ram0 on /var/lib/apache/gzip_tmp type ext2 (rw)
/usr/local/afs_data/rs1 on /vicepa type ext2 (rw,loop=/dev/loop0)

everything is ok with the loop device but what is the problem with the AFS?
