It looks like the client failed to resolve any addresses for your Coda
server. My guess is that this is a 5.3.20 client, because 6.0 doesn't
need a server to mount /coda.

What do you have configured as 'rootserver' in /etc/coda/venus.conf, and
does that name resolve to an ip address with a command like nslookup,
host, or dig?
