Just where are you looking in the manual?  The Unix B/A Client manual says:
 "You can use the virtualnodename option to temporarily access your node's data
  from another machine."

>From ADSM QuickFacts:

-VIRTUALNodenamef vs. -FROMNode         -FROMNode and -FROMOwner are part of the
                                        facility for users sharing server-stored
                                        files, defined by filename via Set
                                        Access.  -VIRTUALNodename is for gaining
                                        access to all of a client's
                                        server-stored files while at another
                                        client (of the same type).

It certainly does work.  Make sure that you are doing the query as root; that
the right source-client password is being used; that it the query is formulated
appropriately; and enclose the filespace portion in braces, if there could be
any filespace confusion, as with nested names.  Perform the same query on the
source node for comparison.

If still no go, re-post with further details.
