11.31 - mounting dvd/cd

I have HPUX (DC-OE) media where when I mount it on one 11.31 host, it mounts fine.

Simple mount usng  MOUNT /DEV/DSK/CXTXDX  /CDROM

When I  list the /cdrom its shows owner/group as ROOT:ROOT.

SWINSTALL is able to read it and all is well!


On my new 11.31 host, I mount with the same media (and same command).

When I do  a LL on /cdrom, it shows -1 -1 as the owner:group.....

SWINSTALL fails saying io error when reading.


Any ideas?
