I must have messed up somehow by assigning the server a new IP address
(in addition to its existing one), not restarting the fileserver,
changing default routes, not restarting the fileserver, removing the
old IP address and only then restarting the fileserver at which point
problems started appearing by the truckload. vos changeaddr must have
helped somehow.

No.  The fileserver had been running fine for weeks.  I had a hardware
failure with one of our database servers that this one was eventually
intended to replace and I figured I'd transition the database services
onto the new box instead of trying to fix the database server any more.
At this point, I needed to make it possible for the new box to see
traffic to the db server IP address, and that is somehow how all trouble

I'm OK now, fortunately.  I had a few "doh" moments there.
