Im trying to understand the functioning of the AFS protocol and so I'm 
trying to set up an AFS client and server machine inside our lab. One of 
the steps require us to setup the afs root partition using the "vos 
create" command.

I have setup a partition at /viceaa and then issued the command

$vos create <machine_name> /viceaa root.afs -cell <cellname> -noauth
vos: could not interpret partition name '/viceaa'

Any help would be much appreciated.
