only got one reply and many thanks to Pierre Zimmermann. 

it could be, that your system has some external file systems mounted via NFS
(the /etc/init.d/nfs.client was started)
but the RPC services (bind and portmapper) are not running anymore
The RPC services are basic services for NFS.
So you can start the RPC services manually: /etc/init.d/rpc start
then shutdown the nfs client: /etc/init.d/nfs.client stop
and stop the system: init 6

check the start and stop scripts in /etc/rc?/ may you have disabled or
removed some of them.

S* scripts for starting a service
K* for stopping 

they will be executed in alphabetical order e.g. K88 before K89.
