rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Permission denied

Hello Experts,

Can you help me to resolve my below problem?

ServerA = HPUX 11.11
ServerB = HPUX 11.11

serverA:/root# rpcinfo -p --> Works with root user.
serverA:/home/appuser# rpcinfo -p --> Works with appuser.

serverB:/root# rpcinfo -p --> Works with root user.
serverB:/home/appuser# rpcinfo -p --> Doesn't Works with appuser.

serverB:/root# cat /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf |grep -v ^#
NFS_CLIENT=1
NFS_SERVER=1
NUM_NFSD=16
NUM_NFSIOD=16
PCNFS_SERVER=0
LOCKD_OPTIONS=""
STATD_OPTIONS=""
MOUNTD_OPTIONS=""
AUTOMOUNT=1
AUTO_MASTER="/etc/auto_master"
AUTO_OPTIONS="-f $AUTO_MASTER"
START_MOUNTD=1
AUTOFS=1
AUTOMOUNT_OPTIONS=""
AUTOMOUNTD_OPTIONS=""

ServerA:/root# cat /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf |grep -v ^#
NFS_CLIENT=1
NFS_SERVER=1
NUM_NFSD=16
NUM_NFSIOD=16
PCNFS_SERVER=0
LOCKD_OPTIONS=""
STATD_OPTIONS=""

AUTOMOUNT=1
AUTO_MASTER="/etc/auto_master"

My appuser need to run rpcinfo -p command, Appuser is getting below message:

appuser@serverB:/home/appuser> rpcinfo -p
rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Permission denied

Uday
