Tramp needs to detect which "test" command it can apply on a remote
host. It prefers "test -e", but this does not work with all shells.
In your case, it has decided to use it.

Could you, please, apply the following commands on your solaris host,
and show the results?

test -e /
echo tramp_exit_status $?
test -e /\ this\ file\ does\ not\ exist\ 
echo tramp_exit_status $?
test -e /export/home/zhang/cvswork/
echo tramp_exit_status $?
