NJIT is scheduled to start the transition to Kerberos 5 authentication
for AFS on or about 1/7/09 - please see:
At about that date we'll make available instructions for authentication
to Kerberos 5 for Windows.

} Hi Paul,
} I'm CC'ing Kevin Walsh who was the coordinator for the 2008 AFS &
} Kerberos Workshop that was hosted at NJIT.
} You're right, I see no reference to Kerberos on the NJIT help pages.
} This suggests that NJIT might be using kaserver, which is deprecated.
} I assume that you're using the CellServDB file from
} http://web.njit.edu/all_topics/AFS/CellServDB, which doesn't list
} openafs.org as a cell!! That explains some things.
} Paul, please try going to \\afs\uncc.edu in windows explorer and see if
} that works. That cell IS listed in the NJIT CellServDB and I verified
} that the entry is correct.
} (Kevin, please ask the right person to add openafs.org to the NJIT
} OpenAFS-info mailing list
