[OpenAFS] Re-using Drive on New Server

I have created a new Openafs server using Debian. I have moved the
physical drive containing the AFS partitions and volumes into the new
server. I have mounted the partitions /vicepa and /vicepb. vos listvol
shows 3 offLine volumes on /vicepa and 9 offLine volumes on /vicepb.
I didn't grab a list of volumes/mountpoints before I retired the old server.
Is there a method to remount the volumes to their mount points? Is
there a method to discover the name of the volume? If I new that, I'd
be in business since the names and the mountpoints were closely related.
If there were a file similar to fstab, then I would just use that to
remount my volumes in the correct mount points.
I recall someone advised me to establish the new server and replicate
the old server. Thanks! That was good advice. I might just go spend
some dough on a new disc and rebuild the old server to do that if no one
can get my new server up as it is right now.
