I did tried auto option but it did not work either.
Somehow I feel that eth-0 and eth-1 interfaces are up after syetm trying to mount nfs during system power up inititalization. Is it a possiblity? CompactRio power up console log is shown below. I could see n/w interface details are listed at the end. Not sure if that means those are up only at the end.

Welcome to LabVIEW Real-Time 13.0
Finally I got the solution. The issue was related to the absence of mountnfs service. CompactRio boots up with runlevel 5. After digging deeper, it was found that '/etc/init.d/mountnfs.sh' service is not not connected in /etc/rc5.d/ and was not getting executed.
I used following commands to connect it to rc5.d:
# cd /etc/init.d
# update-rc.d mountnfs.sh start 69 5 .
Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/mountnfs.sh.
Note: Sequence number '69' is used here as at reboot level 6 (/etc/rc6.d/) the umountnfs.sh is running at sequence: 31. (standard rule: 100 - 31 = 69)
# ls -rtl /etc/rc5.d
S69mountnfs.sh -> ../init.d/mountnfs.sh
After next power boot-up, I could see that my nfs share (defined in /etc/fstab) was mounted without any issue: (shown below)
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
ubi1:rootfs on / type ubifs (rw,relatime)
126.96.36.199:/tmp on /mnt/iasHome type nfs (rw,relatime,vers=3,rsize=524288,wsize=524288,namlen=255,hard,nolock,proto=tcp,port=2049,timeo=70,retrans=3,sec=sys,local_lock=all,addr=188.8.131.52)
Thank you BradM and TD for your help on guiding towards right direction.
