For the time beeing this is the only machine in the Cell. On time I tried
to add another db in the cell and failed, I then reverted to this one
machine config

Obviously there is something here:  prdb.DB0 sizes only 64 bytes. So it
looks like I lost it. I gonna try to rebuilt it with the entries I have in
the KDC.

digging around I found mention of an prdb_check utility in Transarc doc,
but didn't find it in openafs, where is it ?

Thanks Hartmut.
