I am looking for a way to tell the Network Identity Manager to retrieve
credentials for the home cell of a client when a new user logs in.
Currently, when users log in, they will get their Kerberos credentials
automatically from the default MIT Kerberos realm, but not AFS
credentials.  They have to edit the identity settings for that identity
and click add to add the default AFS cell to their identity.  After that
future log-ins will work, but, as we do not use roaming profiles,
logging in to a different computer for the first time and they will
still have to add the cell.  The default realm is EXAMPLE.COM and the
default cell is example.com.  Since this setting is stored per-identity
per-user, I am not sure how to set it up automatically other than a
fancy logon script.
