[OpenAFS] mkmount -- unable to create a root.cell mount point
Tue, 23 May 2006 13:24:53 -0400
/afs is readonly, either because you're using the freelance mode
or because root.afs is a read-only clone. Try running "fs newcell"
with the new cell information. In the latter case you also need to
edit the read-write copy of your root.afs volume.

> this is what I got :
> fs: You can not change a backup or readonly volume
> of course no mount point was created.
> I have updated the CellServDB with the new ip addrs.
