But why the nfsserver is not available under /etc/init.d i guess that's where the application is trying to initiate commands?? any solution for this will be a great help..

Thanks in advance..
Hi and welcome to the Forum
That's because systemd is used and not sysVinit anymore, in the application your trying to install, does it not have an option to use for systemd? If not what is the init file, you will need to convert to a systemd file and place in /etc/systemd/system directory.

Or is the application just trying to check the service is running, if so you would need to tweak the script that's calling the old sysVinit stuff.
