Thanks for your answer.
Well I found the file prdb_check. It doesnt print any errors. Only  
thing I can find is with
./prdb_check -database /var/lib/openafs/db/prdb.DB0 -uheader -verbose
this line:
Ubik header size is 0 (should be 64)

So there are no errors! I can start the server and everything runs  
fine but the machine wont mount /afs!
