If you copied a live /var over to the new partition you might have
issues from stale lock files that prevent services from
starting. /var/lock/subsys/nfsd comes to mind in this particular case.
If the service ain't running that file shouldn't be there.

I don't think stale pid files are as troublesome but it doesn't hurt to
have a look at /var/run as well.
