[OpenAFS] Problem

I'm migrating some servers to new machines.

Everything seems OK, except when I try to "vos release" a volume, it says 

Could not lock the VLDB entry for the volume 536871277.
u: not synchronization site (should work on sync site)
Error in vos release command.
u: not synchronization site (should work on sync site)

I am at the sync site. The udebug localhost 7003 gives:

Local db version is 1020961454.10
I am sync site until 55 secs from now (at Thu May  9 17:43:06 2002) (3 servers)
Recovery state 1f
Sync site's db version is 1020961454.10
0 locked pages, 0 of them for write
Last time a new db version was labelled was:
         1074 secs ago (at Thu May  9 17:24:17 2002)

If I issue the "vos release -localauth" on the same volume, it works, so it's not a volume problem (I've also tried with others).
I am listed in the "bos listusers", I have a valid token and I'm logged in as root.

Does anyone know what might be the error? Everything else seems to be working.

Thank you,

PS - The sync site gets its IP address by DHCP (although it always gets the same). Could this be it?
