Err, no.

The original error message is from ktc_SetToken().  The symbol used for
this error code (look in ktc_errors.et) is KTC_NOCELL.  That only
appears in one place in auth/ktc.c ... when the return code is ESRCH.

Tracking that back into the kernel module (look for PSetTokens in
afs/afs_pioctl.c), you can see where ESRCH is returned, and under what
circumstances.  This gets further complicated by the fact that the DNS
queries are actually done by a callout thread in afsd.  The function
I suggested putting some debugging code in is in afsd.
