We have a similar configuration at our AFS cell. What=20
we've done is set up=20
separate CellServDB files for clients on the non-routable=20
network which point=20
to the non-routable volserver IP. We also added several=20
lines to the init scripts (at the end of the start()=20
method) to cause the=20
clients to prefer the volume locators and file servers we=20
want them to talk=20
to. It's a bit of a kludge, but none of the other methods=20
we've found have=20
worked to any degree of satisfaction.
