I don't think DNS is an issue at this point, although it might be.

vos listaddrs -nore output would be handy to see.

vos create root.cell wait a few minutes, restart your AFS client, and 
then try the fs sa command again.  Just in case -dynroot is on this will 
allow you to at least see something in /afs assuming you can get tokens 
with aklog.

The other question is if afsd is even loading properly.  Any dmesg 
output when afsd starts?
