Check the /etc/rsyslog.conf file where daemon log messages goes.
Else try to get all log messages to any files (OR) terminal.
For example,
Code:
*.*                                    /dev/tty12
Now restart the rsyslogd, xinetd and nfsd server and check log messages,
Also check init-script of each server and check each and every steps.

I had faced out the nfs restart failure before,Im my case the cause was due to conflict between two nfs version

#rpm -qa | grep nfs -Check whether there is conflict between two nfs version

Look after the thread

Thx brother for ur reply but I don't understand how I generate the log when I restart/start/stop a service , like
"service xinetd restart"


My syslog file configuration is below .. ..

------------------------------------
[root@dataguard ~]# cat /etc/syslog.conf
# Log all kernel messages to the console.
# Logging much else clutters up the screen.
#kern.* /dev/console

# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!
*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none /var/log/messages

# The authpriv file has restricted access.
authpriv.* /var/log/secure

# Log all the mail messages in one place.
mail.* -/var/log/maillog


# Log cron stuff
cron.* /var/log/cron

# Everybody gets emergency messages
*.emerg *

# Save news errors of level crit and higher in a special file.
uucp,news.crit /var/log/spooler

# Save boot messages also to boot.log
local7.* /var/log/boot.log
------------------------------------

As per your rsyslogd configuration you will find required logs in /var/log/messages file.
If you are not able to see any log messages related with xinetd and nfsd,
then start the servers and check the output of
Code:
netstat -tan
I am not sure, but I think improper shutdown of server left some lock files on system.
So read the init-script and check each steps.

I can say that, portmapper service is running.

But brother, I can't say which port is used by xinetd and nfsd.
It is totally depend upon server configuration.
So check configuration file of xinetd and nfsd, init-script and /etc/sysconfig files of servers,
to find out which port is used by servers.

By reading your first post, what I understand is:
Previously xinetd and nfsd servers was running and suddenly you are not able to start servers.

So Just to find out the problem,
I suggest,
Code:
*.*                                    /dev/tty12
Add this line into /etc/rsyslogd.conf

Run your system in SELinux permissive mode.
Code:
# setenforce 0
# sestatus
After that restart rsyslogd, xinetd and nfsd server.

Check logs at virtual console tty12,

Then check output of
Code:
# netstat -tan
# showmount -e
# rpcinfo -p
Also check /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny, /etc/services files.
If nfsd port no entry is not present in /etc/services then we can't start nfsd.
And check /etc/exports files.

The main nfs daemon listens on port 2049: /etc/services.
