[OpenAFS] sysid

Hi folks,

After experimenting with /var/lib/openafs/local/NetInfo on my Debian  
squeeze servers (OpenAFS v1.4.12.1+dfsg-3), I've noticed that if I  
rename the sysid file and restart the file server process, the sysid  
is not automatically recreated. Running  
"/etc/init.d/openafs-fileserver restart" doesn't recreate it either.

My question is, when does the system automatically recreate the sysid  
file, and when does it not do this? What are the requirements and can  
they be checked?
