You say that you have a valid token for your cell. Can you verify that
by creating a volume on your aold fileserver?

My guess is that your fileserver does not have the necesarry information
to validate your token.

Every fileserver has to have a keyfile storing some sort of key for
decrypting or something like that. (If you want to know more, read about
Kerberos protocols.)

This file is called KeyFile and stored on each server. If those files
are not identical, authentication will fail.

A good hint is to read the logfiles of your AFS-Server too. They are not
too verbose, but they can contain valuable information sometimes.

You find them in the logs directory.

Good luck!
