Yes, it has been tried:

rankin[10]$ uname -a
SunOS rankin 5.6 Generic_105181-16 sun4m sparc SUNW,SPARCstation-5

rankin[11]$ ls /coda
company  public  usr

rankin[12]$ cfs la /coda
System:Administrators  rlidwka 
      System:AnyUser  rl      

So, here are some questions:

  What is your hardware?  (The above was on a sparc 5, not any of the
    64 bit machines.  I have not had access to a 64 bit machine to
    work on it yet.  I hope to have access soon.)

  Can you send me a copy of your /var/adm/messages this the excerpt
    that includes building and installing the solaris kernel module
    and then when you start venus.

  Also, it would be nice to see the /usr/coda/etc/console output from

Thanks for trying the solaris version!
