Oh, um... that sounds logical. :-) Let's see:
VL_RegisterAddrs rpc failed; The IP address exists on a different
server; repair it
VL_RegisterAddrs rpc failed; See VLLog for details
Those two lines repeated 37 times. All the VLLog said was:
Using 188.8.131.52 as my primary address
Starting AFS vlserver 4 (/usr/lib/openafs/vlserver)
That's my fault. While troubleshooting a problem, I decided to add an
internal address, 192.168.24.10, to the server's NetInfo file, in
addition to 184.108.40.206. The server's CellServDB only contains
220.127.116.11 (the same host also runs a ptserver and a vlserver).
After removing the internal address from the NetInfo file, the errors
were no longer present in the FileLog after the file server was
restarted and a new sysid was created automatically.

What do you mean by "f912d849d3201b004ae7dbacf2d4848836fa986f"?
