That has nothing to do with your CellServDB.
This happens sometimes on Windows AFS servers when you have more than 
one interface and you start AFS without having  the correct ip address 
At least this was my experience some time ago.

Am I right, this is a Windows server???

Sometimes when you try to remove that address your server will 
completely disappear for a while but AFS is still working.
That's why I never worried about it. I heard from others that moving 
all the volumes to another server and back would solve that. I don't 
know if this helps in your case because you have the root.afs on that 
server and you shouldn't be moving that volume AND the replicas.
