Thanks  to Casper ,John and Glass  , 

Before editing /etc/shutdown  I tried    
   Nfs.server stop 
  Clear rmtab 
  Nfs.server start 

Checked system by shutdown  command no rpc messages this time ..

   /etc/shutdown is simply a script.  Edit the script to not do the rwall

Glass, David (UDB) []   
 Use init 0 rather than shutdown, or edit /usr/sbin/shutdown (or write your
own script) (it is only a shell script which does things like the 
rwall and write the /etc/nologin file before calling init).

First shutdown mountd:
/etc/init.d/nfs.server stop
then clear /etc/rmtab

then restart mountd/nfsserver
/etc/init.d/nfs.server start

/etc/rmtab keeps track of which systems mounted you and didn't cleanly
