Running it as root doesn't help as long as the bosserver wasn't started with
'-noauth'. Try this:
# /etc/init.d/openafs-fileserver stop
# /usr/sbin/bosserver -noauth

There is a tool called pt_util for initially creating a PTDB-Database-file without
any tokens needed (The first space in the 3rd line is important!):
# cat /tmp/initial_ptdb
admin 128/20 1 -204 -204
system:administrators 130/20 -204 -204 -204
# pt_util -p /var/lib/openafs/db/prdb.DB0 -w < /tmp/initial_ptdb
After you've got the admin-account, you should use it to issue pts-commands.
