[OpenAFS] Need help Please

Wed, 31 May 2006 15:15:10 -0400

I only have one machine to test this on.

I have some familiarity with Linux and the client server model so its
not that bad. I essentially cannot mount the user volumes. I would like
to understand why.

These are some funny entries in the protection database. I am not sure
that this should be as it is:

-bash-2.05b$ pts listentries
Name                          ID  Owner Creator
anonymous                  32766   -204    -204=20
admin                          1   -204   32766=20
lsorrillo                    500   -204   32766=20
sorrillo                     501   -204   32766=20

The -204 and 32766 entries are weird.

It sounds like you are setting up AFS for the first time. So, one=20=20
suggestion is: install the server (and not the client) on one system,=20=20
and install only the client on another system.

Then, you'll get a better sense of what the server does, and what the=20=20
client does.

There's a pretty steep learning curve initially, so you want to make=20=20
it as non-confusing as possible.

Good luck.
