Bos is only concerned with whether the process is running -- it doesn't do
any test RPCs or anything like that.

So, it seems like no authentication is working yet.  If I remember
correctly from previous mail, your cell name is the same as your realm
name, so you shouldn't need a krb.conf to make that mapping (that's a
common cause for this sort of behavior).

Maybe you should show us the directory listing of
/usr/local/etc/openafs/server so we can think about what route to follow

As a side note, I should probably update that FreeBSD wiki page you were
following to show the procedure involving rxkad.keytab; that would also
give me an opportunity to see whether I reproduce your issues.  I'm not
sure how soon I'll be able to do that, though
