It works long enough to start the bosserver and use 'bos addhost' to add 
the local host.  But yes; that sounds like an empty or missing ThisCell 
file.  I'm leaning toward the latter, since afs-newcell will die if it 
can't find a ThisCell file, but does not actually check that the file is 

The ThisCell file should have been created by the postinst script for 
openafs-fileserver, based on previously-gathered configuration.
