I think you have to eliminate everything that resolves
127.something to picacho and the other way around. If you
have managed to get 127.something into your volume database,
all strange things may happen at once.

Volumes located on are perfectly fine accessible
from but of course from nowhere else.

You may need to start over by deleting your sysid file.
