Now, I think that's the reason for your error "-bash: cd: service: 
Connection timed out" you posted earlier. Your volumes on 'corvus' are 
either gone or unaccessable by the clients.
The first is very easy to check. Take a look into you AFS partition if 
the partition mounted there is still there. Which means if you see any 
files in there the physical access to your partition is working.
For the second one if you can afford some out time, you can just 
restart the filserver by using the "bos restart" command and let those 
volumes be attached again. If that doens't work just tell us what's 
happening ;-)

The question still remains how you got there...
