one of our main afs servers went down (i still have the volume dumps on tap=
es so
i should be able to restore). i need to have something up fast.

i have another box with 1.5TB raid array as one giant file system with about
500GB spare (more than enough space to replace the dead afs server).

i wanted to configure this 1.5TB machine as a fileserver until the problem =
with the
old one is solved. the problem is that i cannot simply create a new partiti=
on on the
1.5TB array (there is no disk partition on it at all, i think the normal pa=
rtition cannot
be that big) so i would like to have a sub-directory on the array holding t=
he openafs volumes.

just a crazy thought, would not symlink work (/vicepa -> /some/directory/el=
