Can someone describe the steps necessary to effect this change?  We
migrated our cell to kerberos V two years ago but still use the
afs@REALM shorthand.  I would expect that the change involves some
add_principal and ktadd commands and maybe asetkey and copying
super-secret files around, but I'm afraid if I tried to do it myself,
I would get a kvno problem and the fileservers would stop working
and/or it would be impossible to get AFS tokens.  If it helps,
there's nothing wrong with leaving the old afs@REALM principal alive
and working.
