Oh, hmm, this starts too late. I guess you don't have the BosLog before

The incorrect vnode length should result in the RO getting deleted. I'm
not sure why it's not; I'll look tomorrow. I expect that's not a dafs
problem, though; just a general salvager issue.
A vnode that keeps having the wrong length might be one explanation for
the repeated salvages, but it still seems like the headers are screwed
up, which is (probably) unrelated.

Do you know if this volume was recreated between these times? I'm not
sure if the salvager is just lying, but this would indicate it deleted
the RO, and then it came back again and again has invalid metadata.

Actually, it may help to continue for an interation or two more. I don't
think these salvages have repeated themselves yet.

Yes, if it'll let you. The salvage is supposed to delete it for you, but
if it's not it's not.

Those are fine; vnodes like this:
> 15040 Vnode 472.0.0 cloned: 0, length: 0 linkCount: 0 parent: 0 UFS-Filename: /vicepa/AFSIDat/d=/d3++U/+/+/+
That is, vnodes like "Vnode X.0.0", are 'blank'; the vnode entry is just
zeroed out because the indices are expanded by some amount at a time in
chunks (512, or something?).
Based on the salsrv logs, I'd be looking at vnodes 264, 266, and 268 in
536870915/6, and 22, 202, and 204 in 536871273/4. That is, see if the
'UFS-Filename' file on disk actually has the length in the 'volinfo'
And by the way:
>>>Shortly after the weekly scheduled fileserver restart
You shouldn't need to have these on. But they shouldn't be causing
salvages or whatever, either.
