%MOUNT-F-DUPRVN mounting ISO CD /SYSTEM

I have two CD drives on my DS10. If I try to mount more than one ISO 9660 CD with /SYSTEM, I get:

%MOUNT-F-DUPRVN, duplicate volume number already mounted.

But if I leave off /SYSTEM on one of the mount commands, it mounts successfully.

Here's an example that reproduces the error:

$ MOUNT/SYSTEM/NOASSIST DQB0: FRED
%MOUNT-I-WRITELOCK, volume is write locked
%MOUNT-I-CDROM_ISO, FRED: (1 of 1) , mounted on DQB0:
$ MOUNT/SYSTEM/NOASSIST DQB1: BARNEY
%MOUNT-I-WRITELOCK, volume is write locked
%MOUNT-F-DUPRVN, duplicate volume number

It appears that there's a limitation, intentional or no, to having only one ISO 9660 volume mounted. Is this true?

Oops. I forgot to mention that this is VMS V7.3-2 with ECOs current to date.

Silly me :-)

The system managers guide http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/73final/6017/6017pro_036.html
talks a little bit about CDROM restrictions. Maybe it is of some help.

Adding /bind=unique_string solves the problem
However it is a nuisance that we have to do this with all recent documentation CD's supplied by HP to be used on VMS-systems.
