[OpenAFS] running vos from "another" machine

I have installed/setup :

now if I try to do a vos dump like :
vos dump -id homestaff.cowboy.backup -f
/data/afs-dump/homestaff.cowboy.backup -localauth                       

vsu_ClientInit: Could not process files in configuration directory
could not initialize VLDB library (code=4294967295) 

And when I look in /usr/afs, then /usr/afs/etc isn't there.

So I assume in order to use vos  it needs to be there. What needs to be
in it ?  the same thing/stuff as in the fileserver/dbserver /usr/afs/etc

I have a local account on that machine.

right..  and that seems to work just fine.

;-)  looking forward to it...

oh and btw, in case you're wondering  why I want this..  I want to dump
the volumes on a "backup server" that no one has access to.
(other stuff is dumped/archived on that machine too)
