It looks like there is no clumanager-managed NFS component to the
service, which is why it's not being started.  If you're not running
NFS, then you don't need clurmtabd.

You can start it manually, or you can tweak the scripts for
your /service mountpoint and make it start if you need to.  The easiest
thing to do is just add a dummy export entry to the service.
