Uhm no this is a Linux ES 3  server.

The problem apparently was the /etc/hosts file. after I fixed that one the
loopback adapter didn't show up in the "vos listvld" anymore.

However I still have a problem with the windows client (AFS server manager)
seeing a server in the new afs cell I created.

uhm, where does one set "the correct IP address" in the windows software ?
CellServDB ?

I couldn't remove that server from the VLDB, I reinstalled everything.

Uhm, I have one production server that I don't want to mess with. This one is a
new server/cell.
