Topics
OpenAFS 1.8.7 is the next release in the current stable series of OpenAFS releases for UNIX/Linux systems. It fixes a critical issue in the generation of Rx connection IDs that prevent Rx clients started after 14 Jan 2021 08:25:36 AM UTC from being able to successfully make connections. In addition to cache managers and client utilities, fileservers and database servers are also affected, since they initiate connections to (other) database servers during their normal operation.
