Still testing openafs features.

I have 2 master servers in my listed in /usr/vice/etc/CellServDb
So all services are replicated, including root volumes and some more.

Both my servers are listed in bos listhost XXX

Now I shutdown one of the master servers.
What I get is that my whole afs cell is frozen during 1 minute.
After 1 minute, the client switches to the other servers.

Why does it take so long to switch between master servers?

Is there a tweak to make this faster? 5seconds or less would be better.
