Dear OpenAFS community,

I returned yesterday from a week-and-a-half long trip to find that my AFS set-up 
no longer works.  The AFS icon next to the NIM icon is now broken ("OpenAFS 
Service cannot be reached") and obtaining AFS tokens via NIM fails after a long 
wait.  Kerberos credentials are obtained almost immediately.  If I use the 
afscreds.exe program instead of the NIM, I receive the error 11862791.  Inside 
the AFS control panel, everything looks fine -- it says that the Service is 
running.  I restarted my computer several times, to no avail.  I was never able 
to obtain AFS tokens.

I did some research on this list about the 11862791 error and Windows 7 (I run 
Win7 Ultimate).  It did not sound like I had the exact same problem, since most 
people reported losing AFS access after network changes, and mine actually did 
not work at all.  However, I decide to try upgrading to the latest prerelease 
version of OpenAFS, which was supposed to help with the 11862791 problem.  I am 
now running 1.5.9902, but the problem persists.

Any suggestions or workarounds would be greatly appreciated, since I do a large 
part of my work over AFS.  Also, please let me know if I can provide any further 
information.  I do not know if AFS has log files, but given their location, I 
could certainly send that info along as well.
