Sorry, nothing really helpful, but we just did a "remove OpenAFS
1.6.x" and a "install Openafs 1.7.x" on our machines and it did worked.
Even with loopback device still in place and network ID manager not
CellServDB is updated with new OpenAFS version.
For the autmated installation of OpenAFS 1.7.x with personal changes
you need to have "transforms" for the .msi pacakge.
You can write your own or make a contract with your-filesystem.com.
