This error is troubling. You've got all your servers running, which
is a great start, but until this error goes away, you'll have
difficulty actually using pvfs2.
Can you double check that all your pvfs2-servers the same version? It
might also be good to re-create the pvfs2 storage spaces (use the -r
option to pvfs2-server, but it will delete all your data).

If you can get pvfs2-ping to the point where it gives no errors, then
it's likely this error will go away.

This looks fine. prospero, which i take it is not a pvfs2 server,
will not need to run pvfs2-server. You're running pvfs2-client, but
at this point we're not dealing with the kernel interface so that also
doesn't matter (but will later on)
