Moved my volume to another file server we run 1.4.11 on
all file servers. Got this error:
% mkdir try
mkdir: cannot create directory `try': No such device
cmdebug.txt lark.txt outfile
I can see the directory "try" from another client machine.
If I flush the volume, it shows up:
% fs flushv .
cmdebug.txt lark.txt outfile try/
