Just a note... there is a field for the hostname in the CellServDB. I
don't believe it really matters to OpenAFS if it's wrong, but it might
be confusing to anyone in the future who's looking at the entries and
wondering what they are. So essentially, no, there's no problem with
just changing the hostname (Simon gives more details).
