Fileserver support for mac os x has not been tested. In theory, OS X should 
be able to use an "inode" fileserver on ufs partitions, but the kernel 
module code required to do this has not all been written. a "namei" 
fileserver is built and may work, but has not been tested. One stumbling 
block here is that you cannot mount a partition as /vicepa, since 
autodiskmount will thoughtfully mount it as /Volumes/vicepa, and the finder 
will prevent it from being dismounted.  You may be able to get partitions 
to attach by making a symlink from /Volumes/<something> to /vicep[a-z], and 
creating a plain file named /Volumes/<something>/AlwaysAttach

However, this is not the cause of your problem. As others have said, you 
did not include the -noauth flag when starting the bosserver on the 
machine, as indicated in
