Just to be sure I got this right - you did vos changeaddr <oldip> <newip>
and now you VLDB contains duplicate entries for all volumes on the file
server in question?

Strange. What does vos examine say about the location of any of the 
volumes from that server?
If there are indeed spurious duplicate entries, use vos changeaddr 

Furthermore, if you really lose volume entries, yet the fileserver remains 
intact and you can vos listvol on it, you should be able to recover any 
lost VLDB entries using vos syncvldb.
