Before starting bosserver, make sure that no other instance of bosserver
(without -noauth) is already running, e.g. "ps auxw | grep bosserver".
Kill that process if necessary.

Alternatively, you can try setting up kerberos authentication first.
You can then add an admin account to the server's UserList file and
get tokens for that account. -noauth should no longer be necessary then.

I'm CC-ing openafs-info, as this is not at all a development related issue.
