Which version? Make sure you are using the one Russ posted on this list.

I believe the new version no longer uses bos addhost.

Anyway, the "can't find cell '<default>'" error indicates that your
*client*-side configuration doesn't know about your new server. The
recommended fix is to dpkg-reconfigure openafs-client so that the
correct information gets added to /etc/openafs/CellServDB. It's in
the instructions Russ posted; if in doubt, stick to them.
