actually you got it ... 'release' is a vos command which means the 
bosserver isn't responsible.

I'm not sure what you mean by the term 'under a root volume'. It's 
quite a contradiction to your example. If you mean mountpoints, that 
isn't possible without any scripting on one client since the server 
knows little about the organization of your mountpoints.

It would be nice if you specify your 'i in ... do' a little.
