ok this is what I am trying to do

/usr/sbin/vos dump -id 536872008 -f /data/afs-dump/test.tst -server
afs-1 -partition /vicepa -cell csc.depauw.edu -localauth

and I have root in the file /usr/afs/etc/UserList

That should work, when I execute that as root, right ?

But I am getting these errors:
Could not start transaction on the volume 536872008 to be dumped
   VOLSER: permission denied, not a super user
VOLSER: permission denied, not a super user
Error in vos dump command.
VOLSER: permission denied, not a super user

>> well I have root as a user in /usr/afs/etc/UserList but I still see that
>> problem when I try to execute that script.

 It's is not, it isn't ain't, and it's it's, not its, if you mean
 it is. If you don't, it's its. Then too, it's hers. It isn't
 her's. It isn't our's either. It's ours, and likewise yours and
