Basic Problem - Venus won\'t start

Dear All
 
 I am having problems getting venus to start.  I am running 6.0.3 on a Redhat 7.3 server with a 2.4.22 kernel.
 
 To start venus I run service venus start (where venus is the renamed venus.init script supplied with coda)
 
 If I try the same command again I get
 
 Starting venus: /usr/coda/venus.cache/pid exists, venus already running?.
 
 and an ls shows that /var/lock/subsys/venus.init exists.
 
 However ps -aux shows no process for venus and running service venus stop gives
 
 Shutting down venus: /etc/init.d/venus: kill: (23360) - No such process
 umount: /coda: not mounted
 done.
 
 The only entry in the system log is
 
 Dec 16 14:21:56 edm_bfhxx_fp002 kernel: Coda Kernel/Venus communications, v5.3.18, coda_at_cs.cmu.edu
 
 while venus.log contains
 
 [root_at_edm_bfhxx_fp002 etc]# more venus.log

A find shows no venus.err file

Can anyone suggest what I\'m doing wrong or where I might find more info to narrow the problem down.

Many thanks

Paul
