In the output shown above, 'vos move' successfully locked a VLDB entry, but 
was unable to create a transaction on the volume to be moved.  This caused 
the operation to fail partway through (though, admittedly, not far enough 
that any real work had been done).  In such a situation, vos tries its best 
to leave things in a reasonable state, and then prints disclaimers...

The fact that you were able to talk to the vlserver, but got 
VOLSERBAD_ACCESS trying to start a transaction would seem to indicate that 
one or both of the fileservers involved are missing UserList files.
