This is dependant on the life of the kerberos ticket the user gets
(for the service in question as well).

For example: to get a 2 day token, modify the principal in kerberos
setting maxlife to 2 days, then proceed to modify the maxlife of the
afs/host service entry to two days as well. I think one also needs to
modify the kdc.conf file for the realm in question -- setting the
variable 'max_life' to 2 days.

Maybe someone else can confirm this.
