This has nothing to do with the fileserver, only with the client.
Unfortunately the term vnode is used in different sense on the client 
and server: while on the client the vnode is a structure in the kernel 
on the server a vnode is a "line" in either the small or large 
vnode-file of the volume (and of course also a structure in the 
fileserver's memory).
