Hmm, "mount /coda/mrblue.localdomain/" ?
You never need an explicit mount command to access Coda.
Sometimes under troubleshooting you may need "umount /coda"
if Venus unexpectedly died and you are to restart it, but not otherwise.

Which documentation do you follow?
The only more or less up to date pieces are on

you have to look at older versions of other pages as well because
of wiki vandalism (imho that wiki should be password-protected and accounts
granted after human-to-human interaction, not such a big deal for a handful
of contributors...)
