You talked about migrating to a new database and file server.
At least that's what I understood.

Of course you can have more than one. You can have any number of  
servers in AFS, only for database servers numbers above a certain  
amount just don't make sense.

It usually is a lot easier.
Database servers aren't migrated 'all the time' anyway. :-)

That's why I sent that off list with a note that it's a quick and  
dirty workaround ;-)
I actually didn't want that in the archives.
