Recently, I’ve installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on my PC and also configured OpenAFS to get connectivity with DICE AFS, from which I met a problem below:
aklog: a pioctl failed while obtaining tokens for cell
This problem was caused by failing compilation for openafs-client based on the new 4.8 series kernel. One solution is rolling back to an old kernel which is not recommended and another one is to add new PPA to update new OpenAFS 1.6.x stable release series(from 1.6.15 to 1.6.20):
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openafs/stable $ sudo apt-get update
Then following the instruction from computing help: http://computing.help.inf.ed.ac.uk/afs-debian-ubuntu to configure AFS.
