Yes, but you'll need to export the files to XML on the solaris box, then
import the data back into rrd format on the target machine. (Unless
solaris and whichever bsd you're using can read the same rrd format,
which I doubt. I know linux and solaris can't. :)

For example:

rrdtool dump test.rrd > test.xml

On the bsd box:

rrdtool restore test.xml test.rrd

This was a bit of a pain when I had to do it, but scp and a little
scripting made it less painful.
