[OpenAFS] Problems with windows Vista and OpenAFS
Thu, 04 Jun 2009 07:08:39 -0700
If you can browse \\afs and it lists printers and no file shares
there is may be a machine on your network with the netbios
However, not being able to communicate with the OpenAFS cache
manager would have no impact on your ability to view kerberos
tickets from the command prompt.
You should read the troubleshooting section of the release
notes if you have not already done so.
The afsd_init.log file will indicate what the cache manager
believes it is configured to do. "nbtstat -n" and "nbtstat -S"
will tell you what Windows believes the netbios configuration
