A running service can be disabled in order to stop the service and make it unavailable. Once disabled, a service can then be re-enabled. See the Section called Enabling a Service for information.
There are several situations in which a running service may need to be disabled:
To modify a service
A running service must be disabled before it can be modified. See the Section called Modifying a Service for more information.
To temporarily stop a service
A running service can be disabled, making it unavailable to clients without having to completely delete the service.
To disable a running service, invoke the cluadmin utility and specify the service disable service_name command. For example:
cluadmin> service disable user_home Are you sure? (yes/no/?) y notice: Stopping service user_home ... notice: Service user_home is disabled service user_home disabled
