Thu, 23 Nov 2006 12:49:49 +0200
OpenAFS-servers on not supported on Windows (yet).
Maybe the Server-wizard should be disabled for now ?
You must run them on a *ix-OS.
> I have installed OpenAFS 1.4.206 on Windows XP and Windows 2003.
> I have followed all the steps for installation and configuration as mentioned in the documentation.
> However, when it comes to the final screen of Server Confuguration wizard, it fails at the step -
> "Create the root volumes" giving Windows Error Message popup -
> "Unable to determine the partition's on this server.
> Error: server or network not responding (0xFFFFFFFF)"
> Following are the lines from afs_server_config_log.txt, on getting this error.

> Another issue is with starting the OpenAFS client.
> On starting the "OpenAFS Client Service" from Windows-Services, it starts the service and stops it

> (The AFS client service could not be started from the AFS client configuration wizard since it fails giving the message-You might not have authorization to perform this operation. Error 0x0000042A.)
> Hence the client could not be in the running state.
> Does anyone has faced these issues/ has pointers on these issues?
