I followed this guide here on how to install OpenAFS - however I haven't managed to get it working.

The problem I am facing at the moment is after I reboot, if I run the command

sudo systemctl status openafs-client.service

I see the following output:

● openafs-client.service - OpenAFS Client Service
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/openafs-client.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sun 2016-12-18 14:43:56 GMT; 25min ago

I am kind of new to Fedora, but have used Ubuntu for a number of years. Could anyone give me any pointers on how to go about diagnozing and fixing this issue?

The wording of theerror message is quite clear:

modprobe: FATAL: Module openafs not found in directory /lib/modules/4.8.13-200.fc24.x86_64

Your OpenAFS needs a kernel module of the same name and modules are loaded from the above directory. It very depends on how you installed your package, but what happened is that you got a new kernel version and openAFS kernel module was probably installed only for the old kernel module.

You would probably need to rebuild/reinstall your OpenAFS package.

I'd like to extend Jakuje's answer with my solution.

You would probably need to rebuild/reinstall your OpenAFS ...

was tricky for me. Ubuntu do have openafs-client in its repos, but module was still not found. So I installed module assistant:

$ sudo apt-get install module-assistant

and then

$ sudo module-assistant auto-install openafs
