Did root get those tokens when you su'd to take the machine back  
online, though? I've been caught out by this before - I've not been in  
a PAG, and then become root and lost my tokens, tried to go back  
online, and just been confronted by errors.

I jotted some notes for myself on how to do this at

Note that the critical thing is that you must have /usr/vice/etc/C/ 
afszcm.cat installed. Unfortunately, this currently isn't installed by  
our RPM - you should be able to find a copy in src/afs/afszcm.cat in  
your build directory.

echo t > /proc/sysrq-trigger
should do the trick. The output will be in dmesg, or in the system log.
