The strace is ~ 40 lines long & is useless..

what (dir, file) permissions are required?

I'd suggest removing any cell improvements since the error messages are mis=

CreateLocalCellConfig() does so; it is called if afsconf_Open()
fails for the server configuration directory, presumably intended as
an aid to first-time administrators.
Showing a complete strace log of the failed run would probably
indicate why, but would requre the entire log, which would mean it
is a large file.  Just exerpts are unlikely to suffice.
