Yes, sorry, I read 'below' as 'above'. In this case, perhaps the client
still had old vldb information, which did not contain the RO site? The
'vos examine' info for the RO said:
Creation Sat Sep 17 09:41:04 2011
Copy Sat Sep 17 09:41:04 2011
Last Access Sat Sep 17 09:40:59 2011
Last Update Sat Sep 17 09:40:59 2011
And the original problem was seen around:
% touch sw/foo
% ll -g -n sw/foo
-rw------- 1 100 0 2011-09-17 11:14 sw/foo
Which is less than two hours later. If around 9:40 on Saturday was the
first time that RO had existed, you need to wait about 2 hours to
guarantee all clients will "see" the new RO (or you can run 'fs checkv'
on specific clients, to not need to wait).
