AFS server migration errors

In the last few days I migrated my AFS server onto a new machin. vos move is such a fantastic command… One thing keept me searching thru google for about a day: aklog exited with status 11862791, which simpley means it cant get a afs token from anywhere.

An [old mail][2] gave me a clue that this is related to the afs cache manager: This error is KTC_NOCM..

afsd is responsible for providing the cache manager, at least under Debian GNU/Linux. A closer look at /etc/openafs/afs.conf.client revealed that AFS_CLIENT was set to false, which means: dont start afsd on startup.

Setting that to true and restart openafs-client solved the problem.
