Yup, had some communication problems between the "old" server and the new =

Right.. BUT I don't want to just install the AFS client because I don't =
want anyone to really have access to that machine.

Uhm, ok, someone else suggested to not do any "pam" stuff.. that way afs =
users can simply not use the machine.
I thought that maybe there was some "elegant" way to do what I wanted.

Subject: [OpenAFS] running vos from "another" machine
I want a machine that is not "per se" an OpenAFS client or=20
server to be
able to run vos so I can dump volumes in a cell.
(Actually what I want is "a" machine to run OpenAFS so=20
that I can use
vos on it, but I don't want anyone with an afs account to=20
be able to log
in to the box, except an OpenAFS admin maybe.)
Can that be done ? (and if so what do I need ?)
