3.5. Locating AFS Volume Database Servers via DNS

The OpenAFS for Windows client will use DNS SRV records and DNS AFSDB records to discover the location of AFS Volume Database servers when entries for the cell are not present in either the client's CellServDB registry store or file (\%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\OpenAFS\Client\CellServDB or \%PROGRAMFILES%\OpenAFS\Client\CellServDB). Also see Registry Configuration for AFS Volume Database Servers.
