The mount point(s) are independent of volume location. Thats the beauty 
of AFS you can move volumes at will and the user is unaware.
Myself I get a root token and run vos listvol 'servername vicepX' 
 >somefile and then grep out the RW vols and use a perl script to move 
em. If you have RO vols then you need to make sure you deal with them.  
But its pretty straight forward. No doubt there are more elegant ways to 
do this but I like a chance to review things as they go.
