Pete,

Thanks for the suggestions, having an individual ServerOptions stanza
with each individual Server and StorageSpace declarations on individual
lines works:

<ServerOptions>
        Server ma0121en
        StorageSpace /mnt/ma02-pvfs-00
</ServerOptions>
<ServerOptions>
        Server ma0205en-1
        StorageSpace /mnt/ma02-pvfs-01
</ServerOptions>
<ServerOptions>
        Server ma0205en-2
        StorageSpace /mnt/ma02-pvfs-02
</ServerOptions>
        ...
