Well, if you do that you just remove it from the VLDB, and leave the=20
actual volume on the server, and usally thats not what you want to do.
(even if it can be in special cases.)
If I want to move a RO copy I first do a vos addsite, then vos release=20
and then vos remove on the old site.

Its probably depends on what you are using RO volumes for, but I would=20
say that you usally want both a RO copy on
the same partition (its basically free) and then another RO copy on=20
another fileserver, or at least another partition.
