Correct, this is just a warning and not a problem.  Orca searches for all
the files to read and then reads them one at a time.  When it reaches
these files, they're not there, so it just warns.

There's a problem with SE installed on some operating systems.  Here's
the patch:

  4) Why are all the NFS server statistics zero?

     On Solaris 2.6 there is a bug in the SE toolkit that prevents
     orcallator.se from getting the NFS server statistics.  To fix
     this, edit your RICHPse/include/kstat.se file and change #ifdef
     to #if near the top of the file where it says

     #ifdef MINOR_VERSION >= 70
     # define rfs_counter_t uint64_t


     #if MINOR_VERSION >= 70
     # define rfs_counter_t uint64_t
