sotware installation error

Hello all,
while installing power path in HP-UX 11.23.i am getting the following error

"hp5:/tmp/EMC/pp/EMCPower.HPUX.PI.5.1.0.GA.b160.tar": You do not have permission for this operation. The depot owner, system administrator, or alternate root owner may need to use the "swreg" or "swacl" command to give you permission. Or, to manage applications designed and packaged for nonprivileged mode, see the "run_as_superuser" option in the "sd" man page.

i logged in as root and in .tar file permission is as follows

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root sys 86016000 Nov 26 22:35 EMCPower.HPUX.PI.5.1.0.GA.b160.tar

what can be the reason sir? any help?

You were root and were using swinstall?
This is a bogus error and indicates some type of networking problem. See this thread:

It's not likely a tar file. It is really a SD depot, don't untar it.
