I'm gong to add a new vol for home dirs but encountered a problem.

[root@server ~]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                      9.8G  6.1G  3.2G  66% /
tmpfs                 121M     0  121M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/vda1             485M   45M  415M  10% /boot
/dev/sda              4.5G  301M  4.2G   7% /pool
/dev/sdb              2.0G   68M  2.0G   4% /vicepa
AFS                   8.6G     0  8.6G   0% /afs
/dev/sdc              2.0G   33M  2.0G   2% /vicepb
[root@server ~]# vos create server.herdingcat.internal /vicepb home
vos : partition /vicepb does not exist on the server

I don't know why it will happen. BTW, I also have a question about
such deployment. The root.cell is /afs/herdingcat.internal so I can
make a mount point at /afs/herdingcat.internal/home, my question is do
I have to create another volume for individual users? I think I may
specify users' home directories at /afs/herdingcat.internal/home when
I add users.

Thanks very much.
