Ok.  For such a small number of users, don't bother with afs2k5db.  It is 
not necessary.  (you just have to manually reset each user's password, 
that's all)

I assume 'KeyFile' here is just a temp file, not the actual AFS keyfile,

Does regular file access work in AFS?  (can you create files, get tokens 
and read things, etc)

Something else is wrong.

Did you update the AFS KeyFile on all of your servers and restart all the 
server processes?

No, that should not be necessary in your case.

I don't believe 'vos listvol' requires any special privileges.

Again, can you even access files after aklog?

You don't need to change anything in ptserver after switching to krb5.

Don't try afs2k5db for now; something else must be broken.
