Ok, another machine, another 1.4.2fc3 install.
this time it is windows 2003 server, I uninstalled OpenAFS 1.4.007
within th windows "add or remove Software" window. Rebooted and
installed OpenAFS for windows 1.4.2fc3 MSI package. And yes, I selected
custom install, selected crypt security on, the other three off. And I
selected the cell to "cgv.tugraz.at".
After Install I rebooted.
Now the OpenAFS won=B4t startup again.
The afsd_init.log tells me: "Can=B4t find root cell in afsdcell_ini".
So I think: I gave the package my cell name but without the lookup in
DNS the OpenAFS don=B4t know my servers...
So another entry is needed in the "custom install options" to set at
least on database server!
