That one worked. But now, I want to create an afs user for my hosts
(that is, the client-local root users) too. How do I need to translate
the k5 principal


to the afs user name? What to do with the dots? A naive idea of 

        pts createuser -name "host.iwr01\.mathematik\.uni-karlsruhe\.de"

did only yield:

pts: Badly formed name (group prefix doesn't match owner?) ; 
unable to create user host.iwr07\.mathematik\.uni-karlsruhe\.de

Without the slashes, no error message appears, but it does not work
nevertheless. I cannot image to be the first to face that problem, but
I did not find the answer in the FAQ.
