Yes because after install the rootvolume in not a replicated one....
You have the possibility in coda to create replicated volumes and 
non-replicated ones...

[client] $>  cfs whereis /coda/you_cell_name
Will return you only the name of the SCM, so it's not a replicated one...

To build you first replicated volume you have to do this on the SCM
- add a VSG-address line in /vice/db/VSGDB ( this is an exemple as I 
don't know the name of you servers )
E0000101  scm  server1

- create the replicated volume

[SCM]  $>createvol_rep testvol1  E0000101 /vicepa

- mount the volume

[client] $> cfs mkm  /coda/your_cell_name/test  testvol1

Then a directory /coda/your_cell_name/test will appear...

[client] $> cfs whereis /coda/your_cell_name/test
Will return "scm server1" , so the data in this volume are replicated on 
this two servers...

It is...

Yes, client and server are distinct and could be installed both....
( good idea to have a venus on the SCM to validate you manipulations )
