So, the vlserver thinks you have 0 servers in your cell. That's
peculiar. What is in your /usr/afs/etc/CellServDB? This is your
server-side CellServDB, which is different than the client-side
CellServDB in /usr/vice/etc/CellServDB.

In the quick start guide, this should have been configured around the
'Defining Cell Name and Membership for Server Processes' step.
