thank you!

i only had afs@REALM. should i create another afs/cell@REALM?

if i do following commands, will it mess up afs server?

ktadd -e des-cbc-crc:normal -k /etc/krb5.keytab.afs afs/tiara.sinica.edu.tw
asetkey add X /etc/krb5.keytab.afs afs/tiara.sinica.edu.tw

what are the benefits to have afs/cell@REALM? please tell me. thank you. :)

best, sam
