In order to fix this, alter the /usr/afs/etc/CellServDB file on both
server0 and server1, and make sure it contains entries for both server0
and server1. Then restart the server processes on both server0 and
server1. Wait a couple of minutes for the servers to resynchronize.

Afterwards, the VLDB will likely be missing volume entries. In order to
correct this, run:

vos syncvldb server0
vos syncvldb server1
vos syncserv server0
vos syncserv server1

At that point, all of the volumes that exist on server0 and server1
should be in the VL database.
