What specifically returns "network path not found" ?

Is the local cell in the CellServDB file?  Or are you using AFS DB DNS 

If you leave the machine up for a few minutes (literally, at least 200 
seconds) does it start working?  What if you run fs checks and fs

What is the ping suposed to prove?  ICMP traffic getting to the server
