[OpenAFS] Problem configuring OpenAFS
Tue, 13 Dec 2005 21:27:22 +0100
Hi, and thanks for responding.
I have an afsd_init.log file and it contains the following:
10:50:35: Create log file
10:50:35: Created log file
10:50:35: osi_InitDebug code 1719
I have glanced at the debugging notes, but they contain
a lot of talk that makes no sense to me - I don't know
what to look for. I installed AFS at a different Windows 2000
machine with no trouble, but on this one I can't start
the service. And the error message is what I mentioned in my
first mail, it's the one ending in ...0042A. To repeat:
- I have administrator rights to my machine
- I have rights to use the cell md.kth.se, which I am trying
Thank you for taking the trouble to help me with this.
