What Others Think

a little bit more explanation would have been nice. Also, who uses andrew file system anymore? w-o-w

@linuxrawkstar "more explanation"? Ok, AFS fileservers store data within "volumes" (which reside within fileserver "partitions"). These volumes get mounted on mountpoints which are then accessible as directories. AFS volumes can be replicated across many fileservers. Sometimes volumes can be in a "locked" state and and AFS administrator would want to be able to find these. If well configured, AFS filespace is robust and has many benefits. Here is the public list of AFS cells on the Internet (aka "CellServDB") => http://dl.central.org/dl/cellservdb/CellServDB There is also: http://openafs.org/
