Dear Friends,
 I found on my machine there are some nfsd deomon owned by
normal user instead of root. I am using SGI challenge with
IRIX 6.2 operating system. Does somebody have some suggestion?

Seems the deamon was not started during bootup by root, but
later by user, who need it. Try to look at /etc/netstart, or
other such file, I do not know IRIX. Try also to look at nfsd
permissions, I think normal user can not be able to start such
service.

Hi Hajek,
 There are other people who answered me. The strange process
is not a problem for IRIX 6.2. It is a valid function which is
showing who are using the nfs.
 thanks for your answer,
