I found another problem and question for me with vos release.
The volume:
vos examine cgdata.volume.mars
cgdata.volume.mars                536871953 RW   76813001 K  On-line
    leda /vicepa
    RWrite  536871953 ROnly  536871954 Backup          0
    MaxQuota  110000000 K
    Creation    Wed Nov 17 12:31:34 2004
    Last Update Wed Nov 17 18:44:35 2004
    0 accesses in the past day (i.e., vnode references)

    RWrite: 536871953
    number of sites -> 2
       server leda partition /vicepa RW Site  -- New release -- Old release
       server atlas.cg.cs.tu-bs.de partition /vicepb RO Site  -- Old release --
Old release

should be copy to a RO volume. I made a RO volume with vos addsite on another
server and made a vos release:
vos release cgdata.volume.mars
Release failed: Possible communication failure

So far so bad. After about 2h I break that action with ctrl-x or ctrl-c and
tried it again, but it told me:
Could not lock the VLDB entry for the volume 536871953.
VLDB: vldb entry is already locked
Error in vos release command.
VLDB: vldb entry is already locked

OK, I understand that.
Now I tried:
vos status atlas
Total transactions: 1
- --------------------------------------
transaction: 64  created: Wed Jun 15 10:51:19 2005
transactionFlags: delete
volume: 536871954  partition: /vicepb  procedure: Restore
packetRead: 17604661  lastReceiveTime: 1118826531  packetSend: 1  lastSendTime:

vos status leda
Total transactions: 1
- --------------------------------------
transaction: 1229  created: Wed Jun 15 10:31:04 2005
attachFlags:  busy
volume: 536871954  partition: /vicepa  procedure: ForwardMulti
- --------------------------------------

So far so bad. How can I stop that transactions? Does OpenAFS end them without
any further interaction or do I have to be rude?
And why does the vos release breaks at all?
The volume isn't really very big and both servers are 2.6 kernels with 1.3.81
versions of OpenAFS.

Help to enlight me dumb person ;-)

Cya & Thx
