In the answer book, the cell diagram shows:
CD(s) | Cd(OH)2(s) | KOH(aq) || Ni(OH)3(s) | Ni(OH)2(s) | Ni(s)

Why are there bars and not commas in between the solids, since they are the same phase?

This is probably an error in the solutions manual; you are correct in that the cell components with the same phase should be separated by commas, not |.
