Hi Jeffrey,

i'm using DNS to publish AFSDB records and it's able to find the AFS 
servers. But apparently domain translation isn't happening.

My /etc/krb5.conf file, at the vldb servers, contains

         .fct.unl.pt = FCT.UNL.PT

So i assume it should use the same domain for both cells.

I'm sorry if all this seems rather obvious, but the fact is that i don't 
know which road to take.

Best Regards,

Hugo Monteiro.
