It should work with the following configuration, TRANSARC paths assumed:


        program = /usr/vice/etc/afs_dynamic_auth
        options = authonly

For a user to be authenticated by AFS define in the /etc/security/users file


in the user stanza.

This worked for me with AIX 5.3 ML01. Under AIX5.3 ML03 commands wich convert 
uid to name segfault. I have opened a bugreport on this.

Example: "ls somedir"  works, "ls -l somedir"  segfaults.
