We investigated the problem and found out that there is some config issue.
The config option was the problem:-
Symbol: NFSD_V4 [=n]
Prompt: NFS server support for NFS version 4 (EXPERIMENTAL)
Defined at fs/nfsd/Kconfig:67
Depends on: NETWORK_FILESYSTEMS [=y] && NFSD [=n] && PROC_FS
[=y] && EXPERIMENTAL [=y]
-> File systems
-> Network File Systems (NETWORK_FILESYSTEMS [=y])
-> NFS server support (NFSD [=n])
Selects: NFSD_V3 [=n] && FS_POSIX_ACL [=y] && RPCSEC_GSS_KRB5 [=y]
