=C2=A0Personally, I'm working on rolling my own SmartOS build that has the =
AFS kernel module installed so that VMs could be AFS fileservers or clients=
=2E (Correct me if I'm wrong, but the AFS kernel module is required only fo=
r the clients and the fileservers, right? If I host is only an AFS dbserver=
, it has no requirement for the kernel module to be loaded, does it?

You are quite correct.=20

My server does not have the client code installed. I do not even build
the kernel module on it. I also run a second server machine on old=20
Sparc iron, and neither it has the kernel module installed.

The only hassle is that some bos commands need  the
'-localauth' flag when run on the file server.
