                     DNS SRV Resource Records for AFS

Abstract

   This document specifies how to use DNS (Domain Name Service) SRV RRs    (Resource Records) to locate services for the AFS distributed file    system and how the priority and weight values of the SRV RR should be    interpreted in the server ranking system used by AFS.  It updates RFC    1183 to deprecate the use of the AFSDB RR to locate AFS cell database    servers and provides guidance for backward compatibility.
