We are testing OpenAFS. We have a new cell, hosted by two servers 
located in two differents cities A and B.
Only on server (in A) have a RW volume, and all servers (in A and B) 
have a RO copy of the volume.

 From an OpenAFS client located in B, i tried to access to data of the 
cell. The time necessary to display the picture lets me to say that the 
client contacted the remote server in A.

My question is how to permit client in B to use server in B ? I didn't 
found any document explaining the algorithm used by OpenAFS to decide 
the server contacted by the client.

Best regards,
