OpenAFS fileservers on OS X Server worked for me, at least it did
when I tried it four years ago:

I made the vice partitions UFS because that seemed to be the simplest
option at the time. I have an inkling that HFS+ with case sensitivity
would work, but have never tried it. 

Again, four years ago, your milage may vary, etc. etc.
