Each AFS server needs the same copy of the KeyFile.  I suspect that you 
re-extracted a new KeyFile on a new server and broke the existing one. 
But perhaps not.

If you can join #openafs on the Freenode IRC network various smart 
people can figure out what is going on and help you fix things or answer 
further questions.
