Managing AFS: Andrew File System

From this book, the reader may gain an appreciation of the technical issues, skills and knowledge required to install, configure and manage an AFS environment.
Linux AFS Port Availability

Transarc has ported AFS to most commercial UNIX platforms, as well as NT. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has made several non-Transarc supported ports of AFS to various other architectures. The MIT ports used source code owned by Transarc. (The source code is reported to be available for a reasonable price.) Therefore, access to the MIT ports requires one to be an AFS licensee or affiliated with an organization who is an AFS licensee. Linux AFS is one of the several ports made by MIT.
