All servers in a coda cell need to have a unique number to identify them. The servername to identifier mappings have to be defined by the administrator in the file /vice/db/servers on the SCM. The format of this file is as follows:
servernameX.domain.name 1 servernameY.domain.name 2 ...
There are currently several limitations to which identifiers are actually usable.
This leaves us with a usable range of 1-126 and 128-245 for server identifiers.
