A Coda server should be able to run fine. But as we have no kernel
patches that tap into the VFS layers on HP-UX, a Coda client won't be
able to pass files to applications.

If there is an Arla or OpenAFS kernel module for HP-UX, it might be
possible to learn enough about the VFS to write a Coda kernel module.
However, there are enough differences between AFS and Coda kernel
modules that it won't be a simple undertaking.
