	This is kind of a mis-nomer... The only times I've seen this is:

	A) Some other app has the device open.
	B) the device doesn't exist
	C) The device is there, but the driver only supports half-duplex
(ie: the /dev/dsp device can't be open for read/write at the same time.).

	Can you run a 'truss' on nasd and look for references to
/dev/audio and /dev/audioctl?  That might point the way.

	Don't know anything about SunRays, so the above 'help' may be
completely useless ;-)
