The OpenAFS for Windows version of "fs newcell" prior to 1.5.74 behaved quite differently than its UNIX counterpart. Instead of adding cell server information for a new cell, the command simply caused the cache manager to destroy all of its cell server information and then reload it the next time the server list for a cell is needed. The UNIX version explicitly replaces the server list for a cell with a new list.
Beginning with the 1.5.75 release, the Windows version will continue to behave as prior versions did when no parameters are specified but will accept an extended UNIX command-line syntax as well. In addition to the UNIX parameters, the Windows "fs newcell" command accepts four new ones:
[-fsport <cell's fileserver port>]
Specifies an alternate port number at which the cell's file servers are listening
[-vlport <cell's vldb server port>]
Specifies an alternate port number at which the cell's volume location database servers are listening
Instructs the cache manager to save the cell server information to the registry database
Indicates that the cell server information should be obtained via DNS SRV or DNS AFSDB records
