Has the service started?  What are the contents of the afsd_init.log file?

Is "AFS" registered as a service name according to "nbtstat -n"?

Note that 0x52E is Logon Failure.  unknown user name or bad password.
How are you logging on to the workstation?  Are you using a method that
does not make use of a password?   Is NTLM disabled on the machine?
