i have 2 openafs servers, each of them holding a set of volumes. one of the=
 servers (old server)
has developed a hard-disk problems but i can still dump all afs volumes wit=
hout triggering an error.

i have installed openafs-fileserver and openafs-dbserver on a different mac=
hine (new box), have
a /vicepa partition ready, asetkey done. (no other configuration of the ope=
nafs server on the new box
is in place at the moment.

the question is, how do i proceed in recreating the entire openafs structur=
e of the old server on the
new server, so later i can switch off the old server, reconfigure the clien=
ts to use the new one.

the old server is running debian woody, the new server is running debian sa=
rge. the openafs packages
are from official repositories (no backports or source compiled).
