PATH is one of the bash environment variables. If you changed your PATH variable, the the path to the commands you want to use is no longer in the search path. You will have to add the path to those commands back into your PATH variable.

Note that the commands will still work if you give the full path to the executable file in the command line.

Check the file permition

Hello

Check the file permition with
Code:
ll /etc/init.d/nfsserver
if not set to execute (something like this)
Code:
-rw-------  1 root     root ...
Change the rights over ntfsserver
Code:
 chmod u+x /etc/init.d/nfsserver
Oh and one more thing you need to be root.

Good Luck
