My guess is that you need to regenerate the server's sysid file, since
the IP addresses it uses changed. Stop the file server, remove
the /usr/afs/local/sysid file (if you're using transarc paths, which it
looks like you are), and start the fileserver again. That should
guarantee that the sysid is regenerated.

And anyway, AFS defines servers by their UUIDs, I believe, rather than
by any single IP. To see what they are for all of your servers, you can
`vos listaddrs -printuuid'. So, that may be helpful to see what IPs AFS
thinks that server has.
