register freeradius as a service

After I installed freeradius 3.0.12 on a new ubuntu 14.04 server I was a bit confused, last time I did (running freeradius 3.0.11 on another server (ubuntu14.04)) I was able to start and stop the freeradius server by using:

service freeradius start
service freeradius -v

Now when I try to use these commands on my new server (using freeradius 3.0.12)  I get this error:

root at DEBIAN-TEST:~# service freeradius -X
freeradius: unrecognized service

All the best;
