Recent versions of OpenAFS allow you to install the OpenAFS client using dkms to automatically (dynamically) rebuild and install the kernel modules every time the kernel is upgraded. This simplifies the installation and maintenance of OpenAFS.

Download the DKMS RPM and Dependencies

Setup Custom OpenAFS Yum Repository

CentOS/RHEL 6

/etc/yum.repos.d/OpenAFS.repo
Icon

OpenAFS sometimes creates new repos when new versions are released, you will need to manually update the OpenAFS version number in the name and baseurl lines above.

CentOS/RHEL 7

/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-StorageSIG.repo
Icon

The packages are also created from a modified RPM spec file, so you'll find that the locations of openafs directories, executables and configuration files are now more appropriate for CentOS (such as having the config files in /etc/openafs and the client cache in /var/cache/openafs).
